Chinese Students' Cheating Techniques - Don't Try at Home

Spintronic 2.9 Million spots? (555 comments)

The article states there were only 2.9 million vacancies for a country of 1.3 billion people. That's crazy! This is after 10 minutes of googling: In the US it's estimated that there are over 15 million people in US schools (National Center for Education Studies - http://nces.ed.gov/pubs2005/2005063.pdf -pdf, see page 27). If 1/4 of those are freshmen spots that would be about 3.75 million or so spots a year - for a country of almost 300 million. You can do the rest of the math, but maybe the answer is yes - maybe they should build one or two more universities.
