Poor University of Minnesota. I hate to make another post about U of Minn so soon after my last one, but the irresponsibility runs deep there. They spent $50m on a computer program, and now they’re axing the $4.5m Graduate School as a cost-cutting measure. At that rate, it’s only $45.5m until they get back into the black. Maybe if they cut football and basketball and English and everything else except Administration, and rent out the stadium to the Vikings, they can do it.

(By the way, if any of my students are reading this, and you’re applying to graduate school at Minnesota, DON’T GO THERE. Not until they’ve sorted all this out. Which may be never.)
