i'm guessing that after graduation, students will go where the jobs are.

We'd rather have the wealthy foreign students than measly middle class native hayseeds. The foreign students' parents will buy houses for them in St. Francis Wood as well as BMW M series. That's excellent, more cash in hand for the local 1%ers. The local 1%ers will then buy wildly at Draegers. Wow, talk about a boom! I can't wait to apply at Draegers! /sarc

Kids are attracted to flagship universities. California's haven't grown significantly while its population has so of course a larger number of CA students are going out of state.

I'm not seeing the problem.

It's funny, I too see all these "fleeing California" and "California is doomed" threads and comments, but yet at the same time I see a lot of the "Hi I'm moving from so-and-so to California/LA/SF and need advice" threads. I guess there are still people out there that likes California.

And what's the end game for this posters posting these "fleeing California" threads? Is it just to be informative? Is it just to cause debate? Is it some kind of inferiority complex?

Due to budget cuts they are turning alot of students away. Many of the CSU's did not except new students for spring semesters. This happened last year too.

It's known in the scientific community as the "Chicken-Little syndrome" ...MOD CUT

Where are world's $200K+/yr starter jobs for kids today?

Suspect 99% of such jobs are in PaloAlto region as software engineers

The other 1% may be as bond traders in Manhattan at GS or some hedge fund (though suspect pay is 50% of what top starting pay is for software engineers....and rents in Manhattan are abt 2x SF/PaloAlto)

Kids born wherever are free to go to college wherever and to migrate to wherever are best economic opportunities, been that way for past 30+yrs in US

Ironically, concept of many unusually wealthy young engineers in PaloAlto region was laughable 30yr ago....and even mockable 15-20 yrs ago vs similar-age financiers...world changes as industries rise/fall (as do regions like PaloAlto vs Manhattan which ultimately rise and fall upon a single industry like tech or finance)

Both are true.

Generally speaking, students who leave home for college are less likely to return home afterwards ceteris paribus - "all other things being equal".

But California's dismal reality tips the scales. Students who leave CA are still less likely to return home; students coming to CA from elsewhere are more likely to leave again (though not necessarily for home).
