    If you are an applicant with stats that are roughly the median for an OOS school, what percentage of OOS acceptees should be a good threshold for you to consider applying?

    20%? 30% ? Higher?

    I am going with schools that have at least 25% OOS.

    I forget what my threshold was, but I want to say it was 30% or higher, quite possibly significantly higher. I come from a state with one school, so I relied heavily upon friendly OOS schools in my application. I recommend Rosalind Franklin, Drexel, Temple, Jefferson, Hofstra, Colorado to start your list of OOS friendly. More would likely depend on your actual stats and competitiveness overall.

    Where does one find these schools OOS acceptance rate? Is it a database or do I just need to go digging on their website?
