Thus many of the top students (especially California residents) are already considering similarly ranked private schools. Furthermore, many of the students they are sending to FR have already been accepted to other top schools like CCNMVP. Come 4/1 when Boalt realizes that enrollment rate is down, it will be too late to get these students back. As a result, they could be looking at a drop in rankings next year.
Way to arm-chair quarterback.
Students regularly choose Boalt over higher ranked schools and similarly ranked schools. Many of these students get money either way.
Private school tuition will also increase.
Applications are also way up, which would likely offset what you're talking about.
But hey, you're a 0L trolling a Berk thread on TLS, so you must know what's going on.
Lol at the arrogance.
As seen by the sample of students on here who have gone to FR, many have been accepted by higher and similarly ranked schools. And yes, many students chose Boalt in the past, especially Cal residents due to the low tuition. The new tuition levels make that difference almost insignificant with Boat charging $50K in 3 years. Common sense tells us that a portion of students would no longer choose Boalt over higher and similarly ranked schools.
Yes, applications are way up. Did you think that's only happening at Boalt? Since this phenomenon is the same for all top schools, it's unlikely to offset the tuition effect.
