The obvious rule should be: if you're not eligible for in-state tuition at a
state's universities, you're not eligible to vote in that state.

The data show quite clearly that students tend to stay in the area where
they went to college, at least for the first few years after graduation.
That is where most of them find jobs. It is in part for this reason that
states like Maryland will give merit scholarships to keep its best students
in the state not just for school, but also for contributing to the common
So it seems that students voting where they go to school is indeed a very
sensible policy -- and reflects reality for many, many students.
