Only financially advantageous for year 1, after that all students can declare themselves in-state.
You may think this is funny, but those on the waitlist, in any of the 1/3 sections - top, middle or bottom, in or out of state with higher credentials than the last two acceptees are in terrible waitlist agony! This is a cruel process that has no order. Someone needs to take accountablility for how students are accepted, there needs to be order and reason.
Why excite applicants by telling them they are on the top third and then accept from the bottom third?
How could UC pass-up perfectly good in-state applicants continuously since May? How would Manuel answer applicants that ask "what's the deal?"
they're going to fill the class with higher stat OOS applicants.
Recruiting students from OOS with higher numbers helps the school with US News rankings and the like.
If you're not happy with the current system, you should write to Ted Strickland and your state representatives. Urge them to increase the funding for Ohio's state medical schools.
THANK YOU MUOHIO1403, nice way to put the truth out there!OOS applicants with higher stats??? sometimes.
If you are ranking a waitlist....tell me how it makes sense to accept applicants from the 2 lower thirds before the top third. If you want a lot of OOS people, put them in the upper third if you know you really want them.
Good luck getting all of those OOS people to decide to practice in-state after med school.
So just a little clarification...
Could the people who have gotten off the waitlist at UC give the following info if you are willing:
Male or Female
OOS or IS
just so that some of us who are considering retaking the MCAT and applying could plan a little bit better.
