    But then you will be swimming in secondaries, and wouldn't that make it harder to make quality apps?

    Honestly, I want a year off. OK, if there are any schools with super-easy secondaries that accept out of state-ers... then I might apply there. However, I don't deal with heat and cold very well....

    Wow, you really don't like Johnson City, huh? ;)

    I'll be applying to:

    UT-Memphis (I impulsively put a K after the T) ;)
    ETSU
    Emory
    Wake
    UAB
    University of South Alabama
    Iowa
    Kansas
    Colorado
    Ohio State
    Cincinnati
    Tulane

    Maybe Medical University of South Carolina. I'd kill to live in Charleston, but they don't take many people out of state. :(

    I guess this is all subject to how well I do on the MCAT.

    Are you sure you want to be filling out 20+ secondaries? Also you seem to be applying to a lot of state schools, I dont know what state of residence you have, but if youre not a state resident, then applying to schools like UVA, UNC, VCU, UTENN, etc that are predominantly in-state might not be fruitful.

    Yeah, I would kill to live in Charleston too, too bad they are so down on out of staters. I wish the Carolina schools were more friendly towards out of staters, NC is probably my favorite state in the South.

    I would rather just take a year off and reapply than go to ETSU, seriously.

    To be fair, the Virginia schools take a lot of people out of state.

    I pretty much determined most of the out-of-state schools that I'll apply to by whether or not they accepted out-of-state students and whether you could gain residency after a year.

    I'm considering peds, so I'd rather not pursue an expensive private school with the debt I've already accrued.

    I am a TN res, according to the last MSAR i looked at VCU and UVA are pretty friendly to out-of-staters. UNC on the otherhand is my "harvard" (i.e. I dont stand a chance but am willing to shell out 30$ anyway).

    UTENN - 3 OOS
    Temple - 44 OOS (5,800 apps!)
    UVA - Only accepts OOS early (Not ED, just early in the process)
    UNC - 17 OOS

    Just FYI, not criticizing...

    Too bad I don't have much of a chance at either school :D I have heard though that they tend to look at more than numbers. Maybe their deans are DOs :D

    Charleston is awesome. I try to go out there all the time during the summer (only 1.5 hours away). I'm gonna live there whenver I end up back in good ol' SC.

    Here's hoping I get into MUSC :luck: :luck: :luck: :luck:

    I know UNC has 20 spots available to OOS, but I thought UVA was a little more OOS friendly.

    Where do you get your information? I got into UVA out-of-state and interviewed on the last or second-to-last day of interviews. Acceptance. Anecdotal, yes; aberrant, maybe; but, in this process there are no absolutes, so I'd avoid them.

    oh, i'll probably be removing Cornell. I am not particularly interested in any top 10 type environments.

    From my 04-05 MSAR:

    "Preference is given to residents of Virginia. Applications from well-qualified nonresidents are welcomed, but early application is advised."

    I hope I'm looking at the right school.

    I'm just curious, anyone know the OOS for USC and MUSC?

    By the way, one of the schools in NC hasn't accepted an out-of-stater in almost 10 years. I think Eastern Carolina?

    MUSC: 1,324 apps, 35 interviews, 6 entrants.

    USC: 587 apps, 47 interviews, 10 entrants.

    This is from 04-05 MSAR.

    The MSAR i am looking at has 1/3 of UVA acceptances going to OOS and 1/3 of VCU's also going to OOS

    I see the same stats, but I don't know what the situation is. They might be giving preference to people who claim to want to remain in VA, or they might be accepting lots of neighboring states and claiming they're OOS.

    Or, they might just be BSing in the "Selection Factors" section.

    Duke, Wake, and Emory are very OOS friendly. Georgia is damn near impossible for OOS

    Duke, Wake Forest, and Emory - Good. Emory a little less so, but still OK.

    Medical College of Georgia had ZERO OOS entrants from 04-05 MSAR.

    Here goes:

    Texas Tech
    UTSW (longshot)
    TCOM
    Texas A&M
    UT San Antonio
    UT Houston
    Baylor (longshot)
    UTMB
    U of Okla
    OSUCOM
    UAMS (Razorback alum)

    Possibles:
    AZCOM
    NSUCOM
    U of Miami
    Vandy (if MCAT warrants)

    Maybe some others, but they must be warm climates and have reasonable expenses (less than $40K/yr total). OK, if it is my only choice I will increase my debt load beyond $160K (sigh) to achieve my goals.

    Try U Penn. They didn't have a secondary essay last year. You get an online secondary but it takes 5 minutes to complete. On top of that, it's a great school that's hard to get into (so you'll either get your year off or end up accepted at a top-notch med school.)

    Thanks I'll keep that in mind. I have also read that Boston University has an easy secondary.

    Doesn't Pennsylvania have snow though? Maybe I need to just apply and then figure this out later. If only Hawaii would let me in....

    I wish they would just make a convenient list of schools that take lots of OOS. I hate having to look them up one by one.

    All private schools in U.S. and 5 state schools

    about 10 dental schools (not going to mention them because they are irrelevant to this thread)

    all Canadian medical schools

    First of all no, you are not the only one (I get confused too). Second PCOM is Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. For a lot of allopathic applicants the osteopathic schools are confusing.
