Winners and Losers

The LA Times has a story today about California students who might otherwise attend a UC or CSU going instead to out-of-state public colleges.  The chart above comes from that story which is at:,0,1974227,full.story

There is an odd twist which the story doesn't pick up.  If UC pulls in more out-of-staters - who pay a premium - and more Californians go out of state, from the perspective of university budgets on both sides of the California border, there is a budgetary win-win. Of course, from the viewpoint of California students, the situation is a loss compared to the past when the California option was more available and cheaper.
