The State of Rochester

For the first time since 1929, the 'Best Picture' award went to a movie not shot using Kodak film.

Kodak, of course, being a local firm, having endowed a chair of economics at UoR, and the Eastman name is plastered liberally over campus. The university owes Kodak a lot.

Speaking of Rochester, admits should come out Thursday-Friday. And on the subject of admissions, let me quote John List:
Let me be clear: the applicant pool is deeper and stronger at every one of the important deciles this year compared to the previous two years that I have done admissions and aid. Add to this the fact that our funding here at UC is much tighter than in past years--even though we argued for that not to happen--and I am getting the feeling that this year will go down as one of the most difficult for candidates in years. Maybe ever.
