    question for anyone that might know-

    what is the acceptance ratio from SUNY Syracuse after interviews?

    I've heard that it's quite high, but that could be rumor :) I got an interview for 11/13 and I am not a NY resident- but as far as I know SUNY Syracuse doesn't give in-state pref anymore. Anyone know about this too?

    Thanks!

    i talked to a lady in the admissions office and she said that over the last few years, there's been more of a trend to accept out of state residents than before
    sorry i don't have any concrete info

    oh and yes they dont have a preference for out of state compared however most of the class is still from new york (2005: 8% OOS, 2006 14% OOS)

    Mikegoal:

    Any idea how many of those 350 acceptances come from a waitlist? I should hear from Syracuse in about a week and am wondering if they accept a majority of interviewees soon after the interview, or if they only take a small fraction initially and then offer places to waitlisted students in the spring (I know that Buffalo does this).

    Thanks.

    it is problay a mixture depending on how good an applicant i do know that a significant portion of the class comes off the high priority waitlist

    I have heard from a 3rd year at Upstate that everybody from the prioty wait list has been accepted in the past.

    yes most of the time the entire high prority list has been accepted however last year i dont believe everyone did. They have been interviewing for about 6 weeks i would say

    smilez: the admissions staff here is great good luck i just hope you dont get me for your interview:D

    due to amcas' flops last year, a number of schools did not accept everyone from their 1st tier wait list. it is a best bet to say that if you are on the 1st wait list for upstate, you will get in.
