What's far more likely to happen ITE is "competing schools" like USF, Santa Clara, Whittier, Chapman, Southwestern, Western, Golden Gate (heh), even Thomas Jefferson and La Verne will close up long before a UC does. When those schools do, the jobs that those top 10% grads got (i.e, ADA, PD, state clerkships) will then be gotten by the top 50% or so at the UC schools, making UC a significantly better option than it is now.

Just a thought.

None of the above; not gonna happen. The unaccredited/barely accredited in the State will go out first.

+1

schools will let enrollment drop and start laying off staff before they'll fold too

He means pros in favor of the school shutting down and cons against the school shutting down. He wants the schools to shut down, so anything that makes them likely to shut down is a pro. Anything that makes them likely to survive is a con. Not pro/con confusion from his perspective, but maybe unintuitive.

I don't think any of these are likely to fold per se, but of these Irving is by far the low man on the totem poll.

some of those CBA shitholes like lincoln and trinity will fold first, then, La verne and whittier. Southwestern and loyola type schools will survive thanks to alumni, but I foresee some schools merging.

None of the UC schools are going anywhere. I'd love to see some contraction in the market, but it's going to come from the T4 schools on the fringe, not schools that are in the top-30 nationwide (or thereabouts). The premise of this thread is kind of stupid.

Plus, one thing about Davis to keep in mind is that in better economic times when there isn't a hiring freeze in the state government, virtually every UCD grad who wants to can end up in Sacramento working for the state.

When was the last time that a T school ceased to exist?

^This

Schools like UC Hastings are actually being responsible and drastically cutting class sizes in light of the poor economy (it looks many like other T1s are doing the same). TTTT schools like Whittier have actually been INCREASING enrollment! Whittier, for example, graduated 42 MORE students in 2012 than it did in 2011.

I think Irvine is the most likely to disappear completely, but even that occurring is rather unlikely due to bureaucratic momentum.

Any of Davis/Hastings problems can be (and in the case of Hastings, are being) solved by downsizing the student body.

It is looking as if Hastings will finish merging with UCSF within the next decade or two.
