    I am one of the 2008 cycle applicants.
    Although I am an international student
    I have lived in Texas for six years now
    so I am considered as a Texas resident.
    but that is only for dental schools in Texas right?
    I was wondering
    if any of you guys know whether i would be considered as an international student when i apply out of state dental schools.
    and what would be my chance of getting into out of state dental schools?
    does residency matter for private school?

    state of residency matter less for some private schools, but it is far from completely forgotten altogether.

    However, I'm pretty sure you are still an international student. If you are here in the US on a student visa still, then you don't have citizenship in the US and although you've lived in Texas for 6 years, to have residency, I think you need to also be a citizen or have a green card. I'd double check by calling the schools themselves, but I think that is how it works.

    I think that 6 years deal is for people who were originally residents of another state, not an international.

    Schools may vary in their requirements, so check with them! Be smart about where you apply by doing your research. Below is an example of one school's policy.
