    “According to the letter, recipients have until April 25 to respond….”

    Or else………what?

    Consider this hypothetical. Harvard Business School and the MIT Sloan School of Business and the University of Virginia Darden School of Business and the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School begin offering courses in Maryland without the state’s blessing. The state of Maryland will, of course, discount these courses on the resume of applicants for state of Maryland jobs, but are employers in the private sector going to care that Maryland is unhappy with these credentials?

    Maryland has no right to regulate interstate commerce, that is a federal authority.

    Tell Maryland to buzz off. The US Supreme Court has ruled that a state
    cannot impose sales tax on vendors located in another state who sell to
    the taxing state’s residents.

    The fee imposed on out of state education providers is not different. Maryland is acting
    unconstitutionally and their exaction is void.

    I think Maryland is just trying to protect their mediocre college system. I watched these guys recruit out of state students with scholarships. They actually said in state students would go there anyway. Neither of my children did and we got out of there.
