An Alternate Path to Medicine

Here is a comparison of the competitiveness of NY state medical schools vs. schools with good in-state acceptance rates. You can see that NY State schools are much more competitive (i.e., harder to get into). This is suggests a good strategy for getting into medical school. Move to a state with a high in-state acceptance rate, gain residency, and then apply to medical school. See also, Dr. Housrath's advice.
