Next time you read comments on this blog about how dorms dumped in Flushing or Long Island City are good because they are being built "for the people of NYC", please keep this in mind:
CHEAPER CUNY ATTRACTS BIG NATIONAL AUDIENCE
Last year, 33,000 freshman enrolled at colleges in the City University of New York system. Last month, applications by prospective freshmen rose 5.4 percent compared to the same month in 2007.
Of those prospective freshmen, 18.4 percent hailed from outside the state, according to the data obtained by The Post.
CUNY - a system of 23 colleges and graduate schools - charges full-time students from outside New York about $4,000 a semester to attend one of its four-year colleges - twice as much as city and state residents.
And still much cheaper than the tuition at any private college in NYC.
