I'm just going through some sites trying to figure out where I should apply to. I'm an Alaskan resident so theres the WWAMI program, but other than that I'm not sure where to apply to. A lot of my friends applied strictly to schools like Cornell, Tufts, Dartmouth, Harvard, Standford, etc claiming they have the best chances there since state schools "don't accept out of staters". I just want to get in somewhere..and I have a very hard time believing that applying to top tier private schools is easier than getting into some of the state schools that are kind to OOSer's..I'm just having trouble figuring out where I should apply to! Thanks!
