That's exactly the issue, though. WUSTL has been doing this type of thing since before the downtown, and it seems like they are ahead of the curve. Dean MS9 even said something to the tune of, "While other schools rested on their name and reputation to land jobs, we were out making new inroads.... yadda yadda." This isn't so much a reaction to the times as it is a committment on the part of the school to offer more diverse opportunities.
I'm not trying to be the mouthpiece of WUSTL or say that it is T14 material. It just seems like they are ahead of the curve compared to a lot of other schools, and I think they are doing remarkably well compared to their peer schools.
