In today's Seattle Times: UW to limit 2-year transfers from community colleges. Starting next summer, community college grads will no longer have guaranteed admission to UW (the decision only applies to the Seattle campus, not Bothell or Tacoma). I think it's probably a good idea, as it seems like guaranteeing admission for anyone seems unfair given how hard it is to get into UW these days. Nonetheless, to not grandfather it in seems kind of messed up; what about all the people who've already started community college and were banking on getting into UW afterwards? (The U says it will still honor an agreement with the CCs that at least 30% of new undergrads come from Washington CCs.)

I happened to come by the newest Top American College rankings book yesterday and I decided to check UW. It wasn't even een in the top 100. But WASU was. weird... Ofcourse the engineering school and the business schools were in their top 50s as usual (49 and 29 I think) But it was pretty dissapointing. When I came here atleast it was 49th (which is still pretty low) But now it's totally disappeared from the list.... sad...
