My son is interested in applying. He is an average student who attends a prestigious competitive prep school. He loves sports and wants to attend a school that he can feel a part of. Mostly he is attracted to large state schools with a strong sports teams (D 1) although he has played varsity soccer, it is unlikely that he will play soccer in college. I personally think it will take up too much of his time and he will need to focus on school. My question is, how hard is it for out of state students? Some schools, like UConn say it is easier for out of state students to get in. Is this also true at PS-UP?
