Your state residency depends upon what the medical school says it is, not AMCAS.I have a Florida Residency on my AMCAS primary that I submitted in June. I moved to Louisiana on August 1st, 2020, and started working at Ochsner Health as a Temp Monitor in September full-time. I am still working and living in Louisiana and am paying income taxes this year and next year in Louisiana because of job.
I have not heard back from any state Florida medical schools and my stats are:
3.3 ugpa, 3.1 sGPA, 3.88 SMP gpa from USF SMP
July 2020 MCAT: 509 (123/127/130/129)
Sep 2018 MCAT: 505(127/128/125/125)
I am also a white female
I was wondering if it would be worth it to try and switch my residency to LA at this point in the cycle or to not even bother? I would need to get a driver's license and change my voter's registration and then complete the residency application for approval.
I know LSU-NO and LSU-Shreveport have interviews that run later in a normal cycle(through March and April). I feel that I don't really have a good shot at Florida MD schools especially with my 123 in Chem/Phys.
I did get into ACOM and put down a deposit there and have an interview with Nova DO this Thursday? I would be required to change my residency with AACOMAS too wouldn't I?
Any advice is welcome. Thank you!!
