Chalk Talk: Public Universities
What is a public university? Specifically, they are places of higher education which are funded, in part, by the state. Because of this, certain restrictions have been applied. The state usually mandates that a certain percentage of students residing in the state must be admitted, and they are also offered a lower tuition rate, known as in-state tuition. Because of this, public universities have higher acceptance rates, for in-state students, but in general, they tend to have higher acceptance rates across the board, though there are certainly some very exclusive private universities. Public universities tend to be larger than private colleges, though this isn’t always true. They are also arranged into universities, as opposed to colleges, the difference being how the school is organized.
