    I know that there were a couple of threads on this topic a couple of weeks ago, but I have a question. Do you become a state resident for tuition purposes in all states when a spouse works in that state? For example, say I move to Ohio (or any other state) and my wife works there, can I ever pay in-state tuition? I am currently a Missouri resident.

    Ummm, I know that in some states your residency at time of enrollment determines your residency for the next four years while you're at that med school. So, you pay out-of-state tuition all 4 years UNLESS you've been a resident for a minimum amount of time PRIOR to matriculation. But, not all are like that. For example, in AL you can pay in-state tuition starting your second year even if you matriculated as an out-of-state student. I don't know about Ohio schools' policies though...
