Is it harder to get accepted into an out of state school especially with no connection?
Answered

Hey there, I was wondering if it would be harder to get into universities that are out of state compared to those in my home state. I know that they will still generally accept out of state students but more concerned about institution based scholarships and if they would be willing to give those out being out of state. Thanks in advance!

Overall speaking, in-state-students have lower admissions criterial (think lower GPA, SAT, etc.) that out-of-state students for a specific school.

The amount of scholarships really would come down to the type of school you apply to (public versus private), the prestige of the school (in terms of any merit scholarship that you can receive) and your family's income.

Hope this helps!
