Picking A College

There are a ton of sites out there that tell you about various universities and help you plan what school to attend, your chances, and so on. I stumbled across this site today that tells the percent of out-of-state students at most major universities. Neat. It listed UGA has having 9 percent of its students from out of state. Is that right?

I checked via a way you can't, unless you have a UGA ID and know your way around a spreadsheet. I ran the numbers. It's actually, by my count, 13.7 percent. So what? So beware what web sites tell you, that's so what.

I wish the site was sortable. I see some 1 percent schools, some nearly half. There's probably a story in there somewhere.
