I'm a CA resident and received a secondary from University of Minnesota. I applied to so many schools for AMCAS and I realize now I don't have enough $$ to send in all the secondaries. Does anyone know if it will be really hard to get accepted as an out of state resident? I just have to cut out some schools.

You may want to check out MSAR for UMinn's acceptance rates for outta staters (interviews too) just because some state schools take more outta staters than others. Another option would be to call them up and ask whether they are taking more out of staters this year....

as far as the money.....it's important (i think) to be realistic and send in 2ndaries to schools you feel you have a better shot at. I know that it totally adds up (trust me on that), but focus in on the ones where you feel you would be able to get into.

Hope this helps :)
