I heard that Ivy league schools like Cornell, Yale, Harvard, etc have so many students from Long Island that it's becoming harder for LIers to go to these schools since there are so many there already, lol.

El Paso (which is technically out of state but might as well be in state...it's an hour away and people from El Paso pay in state tuition)
Denver
Phoenix
California in general

I was born and raised in Iowa City. I went to the University of Iowa thinking I'd be a top dog kid from the town......and was pretty shocked to find out that over 40% of the University is from the Chicago area.

Who knew growing up that 1/6 of our city in Iowa was actually a transplant from Chicago.

Once graduating all the Chicagoans went back to Chicago, and unfortunatley for Iowa took a lot of the Iowa natives with them.

At Columbia in NYC, we had a lot of kids from Long Island, New Jersey, Boston, LA, Chicago, and San Francisco.

At grad school at Northwestern in Chicago, we had a lot of kids from LA, New York, Boston, Minneapolis, San Francisco, New Jersey, Madison, and Ann Arbor.

Me: University of Pittsburgh: lots of out of staters from NJ, NY (Long Island), a few from Boston. Surprisingly few from Ohio, just 35 mi. away.

DD: University of Colorado (instate). The largest # of out of state students comes from CA, followed, I believe, by TX and IL

DD#2: St. Olaf College, MN. She was from out of state. The majority of out of staters were from other midwestern states, particularly Iowa. Colorado had the largest # outside the midwest.

I very highly doubt that

If a university has enough exceptional students from a given area of the world, they will not shun students just because they have a quota lol, lol

More likely, their are many more qualified candidates in other areas of the world than LI

Unless of course you have a link (not heresay)

University of Memphis- Most students are from TN, but there are also many students from nearby Mississippi, but not as many from Arkansas for some reason. I have also met a ton of students from Chicago who either just moved here for college or are originally from Chicago. There are many students from other random Northern cities, but not many from Southern cities (outside of TN, MS, and AR) suprisingly.

At Syracuse University, I'd say you see quite a few students from the Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC and Baltimore areas, with quite a few people from suburban cities in NJ and CT near NYC. Some from the Toronto area too.
