Submission + - American admissions to U.S. grad schools falls (

quantumstream writes: "Admissions to U.S. grad schools are increasingly going to international students according to the latest data published by the Council of Graduate Schools [warning: PDF file]. Despite a 9% increase from both American and international applicants, admissions for international applicants increased by 3% compared to a 1% decline for U.S. applicants. Major increases were noted from China (16%) and Turkey (10%), while admissions for South Korean and Indian applicants fell. Interesting, these increases were not exclusive to the natural sciences and engineering, but included the humanities (1%) and business schools (8%). As these trends continue, one wonders what effects these changes will have on the next generation of U.S. knowledge workers and the immigration debate in Congress."
