Percent OOS students for different schools

Someone asked about this a while back and we found websites with conflicting information. Here is a VERY comprehensive report on the number of out of state freshmen enrolled for 2010 for all kinds of schools.

I was really shocked to see that Illinois is still about 90% in-state. I really thought that had changed over the years.

I was also pretty surprised to see that 95.5% of the freshmen at UF are in-state.

It was pretty funny to see the high number of Texas kids going to OU, but the trend didn't hold for Oklahoma kids going to Texas.

No, the trend doesn't hold at all!

However, there are probably more people in the DFW area that in all of Oklahoma so just the numbers game will skew that stat alot.

In addition, it is darn near impossible for out of staters to get into UT with the Top 10% rule. Conversely, many Texas students have no trouble getting into OU.

But the stat is funny on the surface.

Our OOS keeps going up. I guess in one way it surprises me since the number of OOS students at UO is considerably higher than at the other state schools near us (WSU, OSU and UW). On the other hand I think a lot of that has to do with being the first school up I-5 and north of the California border. Most of our OOS are Cali kids.

Let's be honest. Skew it however you want, this mostly proves that OK > TX. PERIOD. (This from a native and current Okie who went far, far away for college.)

Still mostly Ohio (no surprise as we are the largest university in NE OH.) We're getting students more from PA every year because I believe we give in-state tuition to PA kids.

At Iowa U, I was surprised to see more Iowa kids than Illinois kids, although it was close. But there's a very good little school in Iowa called Grinnell College, that had an almost even split between Iowa, Illinois and California. How weird is that? But this little school had almost every state represented. They must actually go out of their way to get geographic diversity.

As a mother of an OU freshman (son) from DFW, I can tell you what went into his decision aside from academics. Proximity - OU is only 2.5 hours from our home. Size - OU is smaller than the major state universities in TX. Campus - Don't take your student to visit if you don't want them to enroll. The campus is beautiful, a manageable size, the dorms are clean and inviting, and Sooner pride is evident all over campus. Sports - Do I really need to say anything here! Greek System - the OU Greek System is STRONG with some of the most beautiful Greek housing I've ever seen. The sorority houses compare to 5-star hotels. I've toured two kids through schools across the country and OU stands out. Boomer Sooner!

Feels kinda weird going to a commuter school while living on campus ... Having a school like this makes GLO suffer in numbers, but we manage.

It is interesting to look at the student body trend at Arkansas. It is pretty clear that the UA is working like crazy to grow their student body and that they are going out of state to do it. Only 61% of 2010 freshman class from Arkansas...lThat trend is also reflected in pledge classes.

From California
48%

From U.S. high schools/prep schools out of California
38%

From international locations
14%

U.S. students come from these states in order:
California
Texas
Washington
New York
Illinois
Florida
Massachusetts

Percentage of students in NPC/IFC national organizatons:
17%

Percentage of students in Greek organizations, including multicultural and/or ethnic Greek groups:
25%

National Merit Scholars 247
First generation college enrollees 14%
USC legacy students 20%

Students receiving financial aid OR merit aid 83%+
