…and I don’t mean this in the sense that they choose from similarly ranked programs. I noticed on “In (I think) at Ohio State (In (I Think) at Ohio State)” thread that many of the admits come from mid-to-large, regional state schools. I don’t know why I think this, but it seems that many of the Ivy League schools draw from other more prestigious private schools rather than from the larger state schools (at least the ones that aren’t “public ivies”)
This is probably due to my lack of information, and that I would rather have people tell me this information rather than look into further myself.
Just thought I would see what everyone else thinks about this..
