"Boondoggle U."

Charlotte Allen reviews--with some sympathy--UC Merced.

Indeed, until UC Merced slightly altered its acceptance process last year to focus on students who expressed actual interest in attending, it was not unusual for high school seniors feeling depressed because they didn’t get into Berkeley to find themselves surprised by “Congratulations!” letters from a campus of whose existence, much less location, they might not have been entirely aware.

(The picture of the cows reminds me of my employer, NC State.)

Yup, that pretty much sums it up. But for a certain UC pensioner and his UC Merced grad-student wife it's a good place to be, at least until she gets her doctorate.


The article claims UC Merced focuses on STEM. Close Berkeley (with its studies programs), leave Merced.
