    I find it kind of funny that the University of Michigan is state supported..yet less than half their class are in-state students.....go figure

    Anyway, thanks for posting this

    I hear you Mossjoh. Nice "state" school, supported by Michigan taxpayers, for educating primarily non-state residents. To my knowledge, no other public school slights their own residents as much as UM. Grr... (Yes, I'm quite biased)

Grr... How does one get into other higher ranked schools and end up on the BOTTOM TIER of UM waitlist? I angrily withdrew. For added emphasis, Grr, Grr...

    Thanks for seeing things how I do. I just can't imagine how someone who was accepted at the other Michigan MD schools isn't even interviewed at UMich. I'm going to specifically ask that none of my tax money goes to U of M in the future

    (For all those ready to attack me and call me bitter....no..don't. I respect the work that is done there, I just don't understand why it doesn't give a preference to in state residents like MSU and Wayne)

  8. I think that the top public schools in that nation go for out-of-state people in order to attract diversity in their class. I think if the school has 100% in-state... it is not as respected. Dont ask me why... but I think that is how it goes. UCLA and UCSF are the same way. Although a high percentage of people come from California for those schools..... I am not sure if they give any bias whatsoever. That is what they say at least.

    Also... I dont think there is AS much pressure on the great public schools IF there are other public schools in the state that can accept alot of in-staters. For example, California (my home state) and Michigan have other public schools (UCSD, UCD, UCI, MSU, and WSU). But Univ of Washington (a top public school) does not have another public university .. so they are pretty much solely accepting WWAMI students since those other states do not have med schools either (public or private).

    So... although it sucks for those that are in-staters..... it seems to make some sense to me.

    By the way.... some states fund private schools to accept more instaters. I know that is the fact with Case Western and Cornell.

    I think it comes down to one simple word---DIVERSITY---either you agree with it or you hate it, personally I value it and am placing a large emphasis on it's presence at whatever school I decide to matriculate to
