Hey guys I have a question:

I was supposed to interview today at WVU (I'm an OOS) but my flight to Pittsburgh got canceled. They gave me another date later in February but I want to know if it is actually worth it to go since statistics say that 95% of their class is instate students.

Thanks in advance

Would you go if you were accepted? If so, go.

The fact that 95% of their class is instate students means nothing. Last year, they interviewed 140 OOS students and accepted 85. You won't find odds better than that at most schools.

I agree with notdeadyet!

I'm not sure where you got your information from, but from the little pamphlet they gave me for turning in a secondary application, WVU states that of the class of 110, only 40 of them were out of state. This comes from 184 non-residents that interviewed.

40 matriculants. Schools accept more than matriculate since people turn down offers. It's possible they had 85 OOS acceptances.
