Out-migration outpaces in-migration
“Manning says the report hasn’t received much media attention but it points up a trend and a problem. “Over six years, the data have consistently shown that more students are leaving Minnesota than come here for college — a net loss,” according to the report.”

“Between 2003 and 2008, 67,675 Minnesota high-school students chose to go out of state for their higher education. In that time, 36,218 out-of-state students enrolled in Minnesota schools. That out-migration vs. in-migration produced a net loss of 31,457. It appears we have a trade imbalance.”
