I don't know why people avoid OOS publics so much....
For example, a large % of students in the state of Utah are from out of state. Of the 19,318 undergrad students, enrolled in the state (at 4 year colleges), 12,658 are in-state, and 6,660 are OOS. Utah also only exported out 1,406 students, so the net migration was +5,254.
^^^ New Jersey really IS losing all its students!
31,686 (students starting college)
4,299 (stay instate)
