    Nope. Got an email from them on the 29th that they received my application but nothing since. I'm in a neighboring state but no real ties to NV besides my cousins living there

    I would just loook and see if it’s worth it before you spend the money. Unlv is very in-state heavy 1/3 of the class is from unlv itself

    Yeah...I know my chances are super slim. I would still love to attend this school though so I figured I'd just give it a shot.
    But, thanks for the words of caution! I didn't know so many students came from the university itself.

    Secondary received. OOS with only cousins and aunt living there. Probably very slim chance but may as well try and submit secondary.

    How hard does this school screen for secondary? I got the email back in June that they received my primary application but nothing since. Is it safe to assume by this point I won't receive the secondary?

    This is on their website “Applicants from states adjacent to Nevada are eligible to apply. Preferences will be given to those applicants who have significant connections to Nevada. Out-of-state applicants with no connections to Nevada are not encouraged to apply. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. (green card holders) to apply”

    Are you from a neighboring state? Ties to the state? At this point I don't think I'm going to even receive a secondary from them. Nice that I don't have to spend the money, wish they would outright reject though
