Well, based on past comments you've made, I don't think you really do know what you're talking about. You've been objectively wrong many times, all documented in these threads. I researched all of this when I was applying and kept up on a lot of it. I directly did all of this, not just through my kid (and he sounds very successful, congrats)
(I got mail and stuff from MIT in high school. It looked cool. No grades freshman year. But even if I could get in, that's not the environment I wanted to go to school in.)
Michigan doesn't discriminate against OOS students lol (well... I guess it is harder for us to get in, but not for bad reasons). It is a state public school. Michigan residents pay taxes toward the school, just like Ohio residents do OSU. This is why they get a proportionally higher amount of spots and cheaper tuition.
And again, this is undergrad we're talking about, what this started on. You keep bringing up grag school.
Michigan has one of the highest endowments in the country, they don't really need to worry about inflating tuition revenue haha
