The other day, the doctor that i worked for said that med school admissions is a game, and you have to know how to play it properly especially when declaring state residency. He told this to a guy from florida that is applying this year. the dr. said that he should declare georgia residency cause mcg accepts a higher # of students (in-staters in comparision) than the florida schools do. states like florida, texas, cali, ny may have more med schools but they also have so many more applicants that it makes it more competitive to get in. im wondering do you guys think this is a true of the whole med school admissions process? is it maybe worth it to come from a state that doesnt have as many med schools as the "big 4" states do? i come from a state that only has 1 med school, so im prolly thinking down the line to apply to some out of state schools. also i dont know the numbers or anything, im just going on what the dr. says, so i could be totally wrong for that matter. just wanted to see what everyone thinks.
