+1. Sections are just seat space, flexibility. When I visited I also was told that class size will remain as is. I seem to recall 150 for UP, 100 for Carlisle, for the incoming class. They are hiring new faculty, very selectively, according to their website. Faculty would oppose a large increase in class size.Clever username wrote:I was told by Elena DeLuca at the scholarship dinner that they expected the class to still be in the range of 200-250, as it has been for at least the past few years. She said they have the capacity to expand if they want to or get an unexpectedly high number of attendees, for lack of a better word, but she said she still sees the class as being in that range. It could just be that the sections could accomodate that many people, not necessarily that they will.Jones, Dow wrote:yeah, this might hurt us next year in the rankings. THey hired a bunch of professors which got the student teacher ratio to 10.? : 1 and it probably contributed quite a bit to the rankings jump. When all of us scrubs get there it might water that number down and it will hurt the ranking.SoxyPirate wrote:Damn that's a big incoming class.
Anyway, the USNWR rank just rose from 77 to 65. Temple is now also at 65, down from 59 last year.
