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."
