    Hey guys,

    So I am a permanent resident with no legal state of residence.
    It says on every med school's web page that PRs are not discriminated. However, a friend of mine did not get in as a permanent resident in her first attempt and then got in the second time after attaining her citizenship, although hardly anything changed in terms of activities or numbers.
    Do any of you guys know if being a PR might have an impact on my chances of getting in?
    Thanks

    Permanent resident status is the same as citizenship at most schools.
