Tuition Reciprocity with Ohio

Ok, before you call me nuts and everything, do you think something like this may happen in the future(near-future)? I'm assuming no, because I probably would have heard about it, or at least the start of it. Do you think it could happen in the future?

How did Wisconsin and Minnesota's agreement get started? How does it benefit each state?

I live in NE Ohio, and I know NW Ohio has some deal with some Michigan schools, but I didn't that included UM.

Well, I'd love to go to UM and a few people here think the same, but most people would rather go to OSU, which is of course to be expected. I'm sure most people in Michigan either like UM or MSU, even if they may not want to go there over OSU. But a lot of people like OSU, it is a fun school, but it is not for me. I wish I could trade my in-state tuition with someone in a different state...

I can't become a Michigan resident while I go to school, right?

So I'm nuts right?

    Why would anyone want to go to the UOS if they were from Michigan? There is little advantage. Ohio has no stellar state school. By the way, you are nuts. ;-)

    If U-M wanted to start offering tuition deals, I think it has higher-priority areas to do that. Wisconsin would be one example, although its only contiguous to Michigan in the UP. It has university that is a U-M peer, so the agreement is less likely to be one-sided.

    I would put the chances of this happening at about .005%, as opposed to .00000000000001% with Ohio.

    Also, if the U was willing to forgo tuition revenue, another area it might look is providing tuition breaks (or entering consortiums which do so) for children of U-M faculty. Our faculty don't have this perk; some other institutions offer it. Excellent schools are always looking to lure our faculty away and this is one thing U-M might add to its recruitment and retention arsenal. I think, long term, this kind of move could be more valuable to the U than entering into some reciprocity arrangement with another state.
