    Depends on the state you're talking about. If Texas, then yes.

    Impossible to say without knowing the state. There is no blanket policy covering all public med schools - this will vary greatly.

    You will still compete as an OOS applicant with lower chances (you will never be thought of as "instate" for either admissions or tuition purposes).

    I really doubt that this sort of thing is very helpful at the majority of OOS public med schools that do not otherwise admit many OOS applicants.

    Your best bet, since you are talking about a specific state, is to direct your questions to the public med schools in that state. You may be able to glean something from their website, but if you really want the skinny, ask a direct question of the med school admissions office...

    I lifted this off another thread. Maybe it will help:
