hmmm...so do they ACCEPT a good percentage of out-of-staters and 80% of matriculants end up being in-staters??
I don't wanna pay $100 for the secondary if they prefer in-staters! Geez...I am in so much debt!!!!!!!!!!!!:mad:

I downloaded the suny md/phd app, filled it in. Called the admissions office and they said they have recieved a few of the online pdf apps and that they are the wrong apps. They will be taking the files offline soon. Also the suny med school app that is online is only for the 2002 school year. Admissions lady said it should not be online either and that their computer nerd will remove it.

Bottom line, she said to wait and the school will send a paper secondary soon (I have been getting paper secondaries since August). Of all of the schools I have applied to, suny seems like the most disorganized with bad online info. Anybody else experiencing this?

They've had a staffing shortage in their admissions office recently, but hopefully will be back up to speed soon. Keep after them - maybe we'll be classmates! I just got accepted yesterday, EDP!

Hey Rosa,
From what I know (from current upstate students) is that they have taken mostly in-state students in the past, just like the other SUNY schools, but the rumor is that starting this year they will no longer give preference to NY residents. I am not 100% about this, but I have heard it from a few people.

Yes SUNY Upstate no longer has a preference for NY residents but in the past they did this might explain why a large percentage of students where from NY in the past.

I am not too sure about them giving no preference to in-staters. From what I have heard (last year to be exact) is that b/c it is a state school, they give preference to in-staters. I may be wrong, however, I know a physician on the board. Your best bet is to call the admissions office and outrightly ask. GOOD LUCK!

according to the MSAR less than 10 % of the incoming class at any SUNY is out of state. I would say it is very difficult to get in out of state. Stony Brook was 99 % in state.

I would look at NYMC - they accept a lot more out of state-ers
