Members don't see this ad.
So, I'm curious as to the number of applicants who were admitted or offered interviews from an out of state school but recevied no love from their in-state school. Just to see how many of us beat the odds, so to speak. I was accepted to CSU and Penn this round, but not to Texas (my in-state). Anyone else?

I've been invited to three interviews (VA-MD, Missouri, and Glasgow) and one offer (from Edinburgh) and still have not heard anything from Penn (my in state)!

How did you find out so early about Texas?

I didn't even get an interview invite for Texas, so I found out I was rejected in December. Oh well, their loss!

I have interviewed at MSU, Western, and KSU and am currently wait-listed at KSU but was rejected without an interview from my state school (VA-MD).

I got in to UPenn and Cornell, but I was wait-listed for an interview at Tufts. I am a Mass resident. I have gotten an interview since, but not sure about the final result yet. So, I guess this out-of-state thing is not always 100% accurate...

in complete honesty, i think they pick 50 out of the stack (randomly of course) throw them up in the air, and whoever lands on the bullseye gets an interview.

Thats interesting... I know somebody (MD resident) who interviewed at VA-MD, but has yet to hear from KSU. Funny how this whole process works. Not to mention annoying.
