    How hard is it to get into UNECOM if you are not from a New England State? I am a NJ resident, and UNECOM is one of my top choice schools when I apply DO this fall.

    Many people from outside of New England are accepted to UNE. They have a very high acceptance rate for people from Maine, but there are few people from Maine who apply (about 20). I don't know the statistics for New England as a whole, but I do know that many people in each class are not from New England. I think it's more important to have a solid application (and submit it early) than to be from NE. Good luck!

    They told me they prefer NE residents, but I'm from TX and was accepted. <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

    I know the school professes this in their material and will tell you this if you ask, but in reality a good number of people in my class (UNECOM 2005) are not from New England. The same goes for the class of 2004 as well. We have 4-5 midwesterners, one from Colorado, 7-8 from Jersey, at least 10 from NY, 5-6 from PA, 2 from Texas, so you don't need to be from New England to get an interview or to be accepted. You don't even need "ties" to New England. I had only been to NE twice in my life when I applied, once for a UVM interview and the second time WAS my UNE interview!

    Anyone know if a very hopeful Idahoan with a 3.65 gpa/3.45 bcpm gpa and a 30 mcat has any chance here? Would be perhaps my very top choice, as I love Maine!
