i don't think are any that don't take OOS students at all, but some are much more biased. I think OSU is a public that takes a ton of IS. OU as well but I think it is because OOS people don't want to sign a 5 year practice in ohio contract. MSU also because their OOS tuition $80k/year. Many private ones are also regionally biased.

Not that I know of. Basically, as an OOS student, they require that you sign a 5 year contract that you will practice in ohio. that's basically it. I don't know the details because when I found out about it I said, "screw that crap" and withdrew my app.

OSU wont even start to evaluate your at your application if you are OSS student until mid December.
Some private schools will only take students from certain states (Pacific Northwest Univerrsity)
I am not sure but I think University of North Texas does not take any OSS students

Adding to the list of those regionally biased schools,

UNE, VCOM, and UMDNJ.

Is there a comprehensive list of schools (public or private) that applicants shouldn't bother applying to if they aren't from that state/region?
