I live in Washington (we have one medical school) and I just learned about the WICHE program. Apparently Washington is part of it, and schools from western states give preference to students residing in WICHE states??

Does this mean that as a resident of Washington, I could get preference at schools like North Dakota or Iowa? Help! I'm a little confused.

Yes. Your residency still counts, but you also get preference at those schools in WICHE states.

I'm trippin'. My bad.

The WICHE benefits apply to you if you are a resident of a WICHE state without a medical school. As a resident of Washington, you don't receive any benefits from WICHE
