What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"It would be nice if there was an effort to entice non-residents to come to the school. To tack on and extra 30K per year and then to offer no scholarships for non-residents makes it seem like the school doesn't really care to get qualified non-residents into the program. It would also be nice if the website specified that the charter scholarships were only for residents. I was really let down when I discovered I was not eligible."

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
