Applying to Colleges from Tennessee

<p>Does applying to colleges from Tennessee increase in any way the chances of acceptance to highly ranked universities such as Harvard or MIT? Do colleges take into consideration the lack of opportunities a student may have in Tennessee as compared to, say, California or New York? Thanks.</p>

<p>Admissions officers are fully aware that different students have different opportunities because of their life circumstances. Whether or not this would give you a boost at these particular institutions is another question. If you really are interested, go ahead and apply.</p>
