They classify themselves as "Modified" rolling admissions. I guess they let OOS kids know fast because they really want them to consider Binghamton. The same with really bright kids (1500+SATS, 95+avg. etc.). Bing really wants these type of kids so they are trying to get their offer in before many private schools which are releasing their decisions right around now.
Robb, ask your parents to complain to their State Senaator and State Assembly person. SUNYs dont treat in-staate kids fairly. They dont deserve "automony" which is a fancy word for they want state funds but put OOS kids at the front of the line.
The out of state tuition at binghamton is much less than what NY kids pay to go to Rutgers or Penn State. That must be changed.
Its a discussion of when should an applicant should expect a letter, within the general context of Binghamton. I think IS v. OOS is relevant, as it appears that the OOS are informed first. Ignoring the situation won't make it go away.
wow this got out of hand. Anyway my friend who visited Bing about a month ago said they would begin sending out a majority of their letters out by march 15. So I'm expecting a letter in the next two weeks, really hoping to get it this Monday or Tuesday.
