This makes no sense.
I mean, seriously. Not to dis my alma mater, but the CW program at #18 is horrible. Or has been horrible for the past ten years I've been familiar with it despite some good teachers (all but one of whom have since left) and at least one good administrator.
A den of corruption! Arbitrary grading! Deliberate manipulation of students! Physical threats! Nepotism in hiring! Low to non-existent academic standards! The highest-paid professor at the university who barely even teaches!
The English Dept. is fine as is my current employer, Academic Learning Services.
