    So, as I understand it one needs to have lived in Washington state for a year prior to applying in order to be considered a Washington state resident. But as far as chances for admission, does it matter whether one has lived in Washington for 1 year or 25 years? As far as demonstrating a commitment to the health care needs of the state, it seems like the latter should hold more weight. Does anyone have any experience or comments on this? Thanks :)

    Sorry, maybe I didn't make my question clear enough. I plan to already be a Washington state resident at the time of applying to med school. However, I will be have been a resident of the state for ONLY ONE YEAR prior to applying. **Would U of Washington view this as any different from me having lived in Washington most of my life? Thanks again.

    I don't think it should matter too much, as long as you meet the state residency requirement. The adcom's focus will probably be more on how committed and well thought-out your ambitions in medicine are. I interviewed twice at UWSOM. While there was an immense pressure put on me to elucidate why I want to become a doctor, whether/not I was "committed" to Washington state never really came up.
