Does living in the state of a competitive school affect your chances of getting in? If so, how greatly?

If you're instate for any public school it will help oyou like 90% more for out of states, you shouldn't go to another public school out of state. But for private schools, it doesn't help you at all.

yes, in-state IS an advantage, even at private schools. most private school's have it written in their charter (or to maintain good community relations) to have 15% of each class from in-state. this usually translates into higher acceptance rates for in-state kids, depending on how many apply. duke, for example, has to offer about 300 acceptances to NC kids alone, just to make sure they fill the quota.
