You've gotta figure that since rankings are relative, WUSTL will have to improve at the expense of another school, or a combination of other schools. What schools might it rise against? The other middle tier midwest schools (non chicago and NW) are ND, UIUC, Iowa, ect. Since WUSTLs medians are almost the same or slightly better than these schools, it wont do it much good to poach top students from these schools, as their medians won't rise (or at least not much).

I think their best bet is to go after the top ranked schools near them that are still somewhat regional like Utex, USC, and UCLA. They are not likely to do well against UTexas, as the Texas economy seems like its gonna do well over the next decade. If the CALI econ stays down however, they might steal some people from USC and UCLA.


Well, we've plucked two pretty prestigious professors from Iowa in the last two years, so take that for what you will.

Texas might be in some trouble, though. It was just revealed that they have budget problems as bad as (if not worse than) California. If a liberal state like California has to raise tuition prices to make ends meet, imagine what a state run by right-wing demagogues might do to the cost of education...


I think plucking prestigious professors does help.

There is a budget shortfall in Texas, and education probably will get cut some. In the long run however, if Texas's econ can continue to out perform Cali's, I think that the improved job prospects and lower living costs will draw some students East. Some might be scared b/c they heard on the internet that Texas is run by right wing demagouges, but I think a few might make the jump. :wink:

You want proof you say? :D The current cost to rent a one way U-Hall from Houston to LA is $892. The cost to rent a one way U-Haul from LA to Houston is nearly double that at $1,554.

Trouble is of course, that long run economic predictions usually aren't worth a damn. :wink:

I just got my status checker today. In the email, it said to be patient because they don't have rolling admissions. Does anyone know if this is a change from previous years? or if they always say that, but give decisions on a rolling basis anyways?

They do acceptances in large batches. No change. There may be exceptions, but if there are they're few and far between. Probably another month/month and a half till the first batch, IIRC and they follow last year's pattern.

So the longer it takes for you to hear, the more likely it is you've been dinged.
