Here is Mississippi State's instruction on this. I'm sure all the other state schools are the same.

Legal Resident Status < Mississippi State University

Mississippi has some really nice universities if you are looking for the "not too big...not too small" variety.

Ole Miss is #160 nationally, and #77 for public schools
State is #206 nationally, and #105 for public schools

Mississippi's public schools are crap.

Would it be fair to say Mississippi's students are crap? I know that is the case in some areas. No one could educate those meatheads.


Mississippi ranks 33rd in higher education, as all the crappy students are left behind.

One huge reason they rank so low is the Ayer's ruling. Schools are forced to admit students who make, I think, a 15 on the ACT. A person can make that score merely by guessing.

Getting in the school is easy; graduating isn't necessarily that easy.

Regarding residency: I believe the Census Bureau counts the city where the college is as the students' official residence. I'm wondering if the way out-of-state tuition is charged can stand up, given what the feds consider residency.

Yes the Ayers Settlement basically requires entrance requirements to be the same for all 8 public universities (along with other stipulations mostly concerning funding and recruitment of non black students at MS's three HBCUs).

State and Ole Miss can't raise their entrance requirements, therefore ACT scores etc., of their students is lower than that of comparable universities.

I have a relative who is an administrator in Special Ed.
She has students who are non verbal and wheelchair bound. In Mississippi, their scores must be counted, even though some of them cannot even be tested.

Figured that calling your schools "crap" would bring out the torches, all of you desperately trying to find a poor person or minority to blame.

Here's the thing - Ole Miss and MSU were poorly ranked and poorly thought of, long before the Ayers ruling came into existence. Ayers didn't suddenly turn Ole Miss from Harvard status to community college level. It was already low.

The professors aren't cutting edge, they aren't leaders in their fields. There's no significant research that moves the needle nationally, compared to other major universities. Those are areas that impact a school reputation.

Can't blame that on the students.

Who would you like to blame?
Let's just agree that Mississippi test scores are low across the board. The curriculum used for K-12 is now established at the national level by Department of Education. Lesson plans are required to be submitted by all teachers to their principals, and from principals all the way up to state level. So every student is taught the same thing in the beginning.
And Mississippi does poorly.
I say "students", which is really an indictment of their parents, one way or the other. And you say....?
