Why? Thought it was common knowledge. Oh wait...

Now that is funny.

Fail.  You saw the link.  Didn't mention specific schools.


And I'm asking, what schools?

So, no "fail".

Unlike you, I like to know the details....not simply the headlines.

2013.

Not 90% of students, as proclaimed.

65% for CS grad students.

My own experience, at top programs, is between 30-40%. Maybe higher numbers are at lesser programs? Who cares.

Schools like Vanderbilt that were mentioned on the article have acceptance rates less than 20% .....

They have plenty of qualified students to pick from .....

Schools push their application numbers and rejection rates as a marketing tool ....
They've got a name for the winners in the world
I want a name when I lose
They call Alabama the Crimson Tide
Call me Deacon Blues
~WB & DF

FairTax - because the Government shouldn't use the tax code to pick the winners and losers ........

Was that undergrad, or grad.

Vanderbilt is not a top (i.e., top 10) EECS or CS graduate program.

From your link:

And the research itself is important, since universities conduct more than half of all basic research conducted in the United States, according to government data, and that research not only benefits U.S. society and the economy but helps keep U.S. universities and America at the center of both education and innovation around the world.

Do we not want the best talent in our university STEM programs?

I can.

90% of applicants.

55% of actual enrollment in computer science and engineering.

You understand the difference between an applicant and an enrolled student?

So again, what accredited engineering program has 90% of foreign born students?


Look it up. You know how, right?
