8/20    Anybody know what is the focus of UC Merced? I've been going through
        their web site and they talk a lot about engineering.  But hell, so
        does DeVry.  How are they going to attract the famous professors and
        get the reputation as a good school?  I don't think that many people
        are moving to Merced/Fresno.  Thanks.
        \_ the focus is the destruction of california's largest vernal pool.
           to build that site.
        \_ consider how many people move to Riverside and Davis.
         \_ Davis is tons better than Riverside
            \_ Top tier: B, LA, SD. Mid: SB, I, D. Bottom: SC, R
               \_ SB vs D vs R is not a given. Why do you place R below the
                  other two?
               \_ League of it's own: UCB.
                  \_ not if we graduate people who can't distinguish
               \_ How do the low-tier UCs compare to the Cal States?
        \_ Big money to get the prof's, and many years of time to gradually
           build the reputation.  Hmm, if they can also run a biz school to
           attract the gals, I think more guys will be willing to go there
           for engineering.
           \_ [readded post]. Harvey Mudd got a good reputation in <50 yrs.
              \_ just as a side note: Harvey Mudd's CS is ass.
        \_ Their focus is going to be agricultural stuff, as expected
           by its location.  It was a lousy idea to create another UC.
                \_ how do you suggest UC deal with expanded enrollment, then?
                   \_ don't enroll so many f'n people!
                        \_ Exactly. nuff said. no more of this nonsense
                           "let's admit the top 4%" plan.
           \_ Competing with UCD?
