    How difficult is it to get into the SUNY schools if you're a NYS resident? What kind of stats would an applicant need?

    Thanks!

    I heard that SUNY MD schools do not give preference to NY state residents starting this year...It's gonna be tougher to get in as a NY resident competing against many qualified out-of-staters from now on... ;)

    I know that SUNY syracuse (aka Upstate) does not give preference to NYS residents. NYS residents are eligible for reduced tuition, but out-of-staters who atten Syracuse can apply for residency after their first year, enabling them to take advantage of the lower tuition. I think the other three SUNY schools gave preference to NYS residents this year, but don't know if they'll change in the future.

    Possibly, i heard that all SUNY's were under the same procedure this year, but I could be wrong...
    I know SUNY downstate accepted many out of staters this year already...

    When I was interviewing at SUNY Upstate in November, the admissions director was telling us that there was a proposal not to give preference to NYS residents in the future. However, all SUNY schools are still operating on the basis that preference is given to NYS residents. <img src="graemlins/clappy.gif" border="0" alt="[Clappy]" />

    Okay, okay, okay, tuition and residency aside, how competitive is admission to SUNY medical school--for NYS and non-NYS residents--and what are the average stats for students there?

    Thanks again :p

    I am not sure about the other SUNY med school. But for Stony Brook, I believe the avg. stats were 3.6 and 32 combined score. This is straight for the secretary at the Medschool Grace Angette. She went over the numbers when I attended an open house there.
