from the above list all first generation Federal Universities won’t offer you admission when chosen as second choice as they already have thousands of candidates who chose them as first choice.

mostly all newly established universities won’t discriminate against you if you chose them as Second choice as they still have less competition space available to absorb candidates.

most states universities are now acting like the old generation set of universities because of the large crowd of candidates that turn up for their screening exercise from their state and other states.
