Hey everybody! I'm an MSII at a school on the East Coast and I'm extremely interested in ENT. I am strongly considering transferring to a state school in the south at the conclusion of this semester. I've contacted the school and there is indeed a spot open and I think I would have a very good shot at getting the transfer. The school is in my state of permanent residence (where I grew up). I was accepted to this school in college, and they offered me their 2nd largest scholarship (probably in large part to convince me not to matriculate at a different school). However, I matriculated at a far more expensive east coast school with a more distinguished reputation (although not Harvard or Hopkins level distinguished). I have many reasons for transferring back home (homesick, father had recent heart attack, possibility of saving ~$70,000 of tuition over the next 2 years). I really want to do an ENT residency in the south somewhere (although I will go wherever I can). Will transferring back to this state school help me in obtaining a residency in the South, since the program is located in that geographic region? The school I am at now is probably better known nationwide, but I have gotten the sense that regional bias can play a significant role in the match process. Any advice?
