I lived in Hoboken for five of my six years working in the city
the median age of students in my class is 24. the age range is something like 20-40 something. you'll be on the older end, for sure, but there are few people here with kids, etc.
UMN notorious for accepting in-staters. Whoever wrote that I think is looking at high percentage of Minnesota residents in the entering class and drawing a poor conclusion. something like 40% percent of UMN students are from Minnesota, but that does not mean that they show a preference for in-staters. It just means that the majority of applicants are from MN. UMN, if anything, would probably lean towards an applicant that would give it some geographic diversity. The school is trying to increase its national reputation, so blocking out non residents would not be a smart way to effect that goal
