Friday College Town Hall

Categories: Admissions Advice

In Friday College Town Hall, we post a question about college, and you leave an answer in the comment field.

Today’s question:

Lynn O’Shaughnessy of The College Solution recently blogged about these statistics:

According to an annual UCLA survey of freshman, only 15.5% of freshman attend schools more than 500 miles away. Nationwide, 73% of students attend their own state schools.

Should more students try looking for colleges outside of their states? Do the advantages of staying in-state outweigh the advantages of  going out of state?

Have a thought or an answer? Leave a reply below.
