    I am sure that someone has already posted this, but I am not smart enough to find the thread. What I would like to know is which schools offer the best chances for an out of stater?

    I still think my state school is my best shot, and I don't have the requirements for some (I went to a liberal arts college and they didn't offer cell bio or animal nutrition), but it would be nice to know where they accept the most applicants from out of state. I got an interview at the state school this year, but would not say I am an outstanding candidate, but rather merely a ok one (3.4 GPA, 3.8 science, 1430 GREs, limited experience, soon to be remedied) so I would like to apply to at least 1 or 2 out of state schools that accept more than 5 uber-brilliant candidates in case I get rejected by my state school again.

    Thanks!

    49% of the class at tufts and penn is out of state since they are technically "private" schools...

    I think OSU has 37 seats for out of staters. CSU, although super hard to get into, takes a good chunk of out of staters too.

    Incorrect quote for ISU. The number of out of staters accepted is approximately 50!
