    20.3% international students, dang!

    Not only did they admit 20.3%, but that's the percentage they enrolled at: http://news.emory.edu/stories/2014/08/er_bts_class_of_2018/campus.html
    Emory College does not usually beat Oxford in internationals.

    I don't know if those two are necessarily good things (a bit high...). In the enrolled stats, there is a solid decrease in the amount of Asians/Asian Americans, a pattern that seems to have started last year. This enrolled class, with exception of the amount of internationals, looks more similar to other elite schools demographically (ethnicity/nationality wise, I don't know about socioeconomics) I guess.

    Just got home to California after launching my son as a Emory freshman. Move-in was incredibly well-organized. 1,200 kids moved in on one day and I didn't see a single traffic jam. Dorms are ridiculous (although I can't imagine them pre-1996, without air conditioning. Anyway, the whole weekend was a wonderful testimonial to Emory's administration.

    Call me a cynic but the growth of international students is more about expanding the pool of well funded students than increasing diversity. It also rubs me the wrong way when I see our top univirsities enjoying taxfree status at home then filling their spots with well funded international students. If I were "the king" you would lose your taxfree status if you have > 10% full pay international students.
    Take the ethnic diversity stats with a large grain of salt. It only records domestic students and 8% are mixed or did not report their race. The international students did not report their ethnicity (20%). So 28% are unknown. If those 28% are considered it's fair to say the "true" ethnic mix is significantly different from what is reported.

    @bud123‌ Duhh!!! I already suggested that. That is why I am surprised that they somehow recruited a slightly better class than before. I'm sure some internationals actually drag down the stats but we want the money. At the same time, some of the international students are very good and it adds a more interesting dynamic to an already diverse campus.


    Also, many in certain states would like to make the same arguments about how private schools essentially shaft in-state students. That issue is more nuanced in Georgia though where Georgia Tech is viewed as sketchy because of the amount of OOS students that attend there (although, one can perhaps argue that, among Georgia schools, Tech is at least taking all of the top in-state talent....most top in state talent, especially in math and science won't be considering Emory unless they are merely pre-med or something).

    Bernie I assume you meant "public " schools shaft in state studensts. Yes, it is a hugh problem. The public schools take the state funds then fill their spots with well funded high tuition paying out of state or international students. Some even have an international surcharge added. Many of the state flagships are becoming large "private universities". Alabama enrolled 60% from out of state and Michigan is at 45%. In state students have become the red headed step children and out of state and international students are the prettiest girls at the dance. Unfortunately this means more costs and more student debt as in state students can get into THEIR state flagship......and the bubble grows and grows.

    oops.....as in state students "can't "get into THEIR state flagship.

    I dated both those types of students.

    Sweet.

    And I've danced with them too.

    How do those numbers look after you take SREB academic common market into account?

    I don't know much about this issue.
