According to this article/the map in the article it says Michigan cut appropriations ~12% when I'm pretty sure it was 15%. Still, one benefit the Michigan cut is that the state has cut so much money that you can't really cut state appropriations anymore. My alma mater (Grand Valley State University) receives only about 17.5% from the state and I'm pretty sure the University of Michigan receives only about 15-16% from the state. Like I've elsewhere on CC, I think other states will follow the "Michigan model" and you will see much higher tuition than the current rates in other states. However, I don't think Michigan universities and other states that have cut a lot in the past (Colorado universities comes to mind) will raise tuition nearly as high as everywhere else in the US.
