    Default U.S. FLOCKS TO N.Y. COLLEGES

    August 26, 2003 -- New York's colleges attract more out-of-state freshmen than any other state, but keeping them after graduation is increasingly a key to a state's economic future, academic and business leaders said.
    New York's rate of attracting students from outside the state and its high proportion of residents with advanced degrees create a potential advantage overshadowed by the mass exodus by young New Yorkers, according to the leaders.

    "I think intellectual capital and intelligence capital is going to be the key to economic power . . . and New York is well positioned for it," said Abraham Lackman, president of the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities.

    New York attracted 24,873 freshmen from out of state in 2000, according to Postsecondary Education Opportunity, a national think tank. New York attracted more than 2,000 more out-of-state freshman than the second-ranked state, Massachusetts.
