If this has been done you can take it down, but I was wondering what cities and states beside the city and state your college is in populates your school. I attend a small university in Pine Bluff, Arkansas and beside the arkansas students, Chicago has the highest out of state student population, then memphis, dallas, Kansas City/St. Louis (tied) and if you did it by state, it would be texas. What about your school? I heard at another school that a friend of mines goes to that chicago runs deep at there school too, is this everywhere?????

Went to Univ. of Southern Maine and most students were from small towns in Maine or Massachusetts, only some from Boston. Only 1 other person was from NYC metro besides myself!! But when I transferred to Suny Cortland upstate, I'd say 75% were from Long Island or the city.

Here at the University of Tennessee I've had a bunch of out-of-state students from New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Florida, and of course western NC. But for some reason we have a lot of students from Cincinnati.

At the University of Maryland, College Park, I would say that at least 80% of the out-of-staters are from New Jersey or New York, especially New Jersey (particularly South Jersey). At the Maryland-Rutgers game it seems that half the students seemed to have an identity crisis. The university even runs free coaches to the Metropark Amtrak/NJT station in Iselin, NJ. Plus we raid NJ and NY for all our football and basketball talent since Penn State loves to poach athletes from Maryland high schools. I've heard the school once called the "University of New Jersey, College Park." After NJ/NY it would be Pennsylvania and Virginia.
