This could have significant implications on CS admissions in the near future. CS classes could have significantly lower headcounts if the school doesn’t come up with this extra funding. One way of a achieving this is to significantly increase the minimum GPA from its current 3.30+ There is speculation that it could be 3.70 or 3.80 for CS-intent students.

    The existence of a cliff in benefit eligibility (in this case a tuition waiver and health care benefits) at a certain threshold of part time work (in this case, 25%, or 10 hours per week) created the not surprising incentive to hire part time employees to hours just below the cliff.

    My EECS son will be a TA winter semester. Wonder how this is going to affect him.
