Sometimes admission is tougher at state schools for in-state kids...schools like those out of state tuition dollars.

This is not correct.  Can you show supporting information on your statement?

TPM - This has been a problem and criticism of some of the Virginia schools as state/federal funding has gone down.   Universities turned to research $$, athletics $$, and out of state students $$ for new revenue streams to offset the funding problem.  My understanding is there was legistlation and admission policy changes to accept a prescriptive number (minimum) of in-state students...as they should.   We are paying taxes for that purpose.  This happened at three state schools that I know of William & Mary, UVA and Virginia Tech.  I don't know about other states (I suspect there are more), but it is/was most definitely an issue in Virginia.

Sorry I meant for athletes. Here in FL, especially for non revenue sports like baseball, they want in state students.
