    Hi Everyone,

    I am applying to med school for the fall of 2003. Right now, I live in Maryland and work in Northern Virginia. I am considering moving to VA this summer to get in-state residency.

    Is this a good idea? I figured my odds would be better with 3 med schools instead of 1.

    What do you guys think of University of Maryland vs. the Virginia State schools? Does DC even have any public med schools?

    DC does not have a public school. GW, however, does give special admissions consideration to residents of the DC area (which would include N. VA and most of MD, I believe). Howard and Georgetown might do the same.

    I asked my premed advisor that question. His answer was VA was the best for admitting state residents. It has 3 public schools, EVMS acts like a public. DC has none and MD has one and it's stats are more competitve than 2 of the VA schools. So if you can afford it, move to VA. Its a great place <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />
