applied kinda late
That seems to be the reason why you may not have been accepted yet. An SMP is not really the route for you give your amazing grades. Your MCAT is pretty solid with your grades, but you may consider bringing it up to a 30 for a solid lock, but even then, you'll get into med school in Ohio probably without having to retake it. How are your extracurriculars? Volunteering? Research?
I would suggest going against an SMP- it wouldn't be too helpful for your application as the underlying reason for not being accepted to medical school yet does not seem to be your grades, nor really your MCAT. And, no, attending an SMP out of state does not remove your residency. Its just like attending college out of state, you do not change your residency unless you actively do so yourself. Good luck on your other interview!
If you don't get in this cycle, you may want to pursue the option of improving your application by asking adcoms what you can do to improve. If you would like to stay in an academic environment while making some money, take a look into researching at the medical school that you would like to attend in Ohio. That can always help your application to the school given a connection.
