Check out these accomplished chicas under 30...all listed individually:

”Forbes” selects four CWRU women for ”30 under 30” Four of Forbes magazine’s list of the year’s 30 most innovative young thinkers in science and healthcare come from Case Western Reserve.

Forbes annual “30 Under 30” list highlights Cindy Chang, a fifth-year medical student at Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University; Paige Cramer, who completed her doctoral degree in neurosciences earlier this year; Christine Fleming, who earned both her master’s and doctoral degrees in biomedical engineering; and Halle Tecco, a 2006 graduate who earned her bachelor’s degree in management.

“Each of these young women has distinguished herself through extraordinary achievements,” President Barbara R. Snyder said. “We are pleased that Forbes magazine recognizes their intelligence and ingenuity, as well as their commitment to making a positive difference for others.”

I wonder if the list was confined to evaluating the top 50 nationally-ranked universities.  If so, the ranking is not wholly unfair.  But if encompassing all college campuses, the ranking is an absolute joke.  I mean, even within Northeast Ohio, how can you say Case's campus is less attractive than CSU (a brutalist masterpiece) or U Akron (a whole big mess).  While the South Side of campus is not great, the North Side is fairly attractive, especially with CMA, Severance Hall, Allen Memorial, Glidden House, Temple Tiffereth and other highly attractive buildings all integrated into the campus.

CWRU on the up and up:

More than 18,000 students have applied for admission to Case Western Reserve’s Class of 2017—a figure that represents growth of 25 percent over 2012, and 150 percent over those who applied five years ago.

If that doesn't provide a boost to projects like Intesa, I don't know what will!

"a figure that represents growth of 25 percent over 2012, and 150 percent over those who applied five years ago."

how does that compare with other US universities? not sure about undergrads, but at the graduate level, school application numbers always go up when the economy is bad.

Good question about the overall trend, though I doubt a crap economy inflates undergrad applications for private universities. If anything, I'd guess it causes a shift towards cheaper alternatives.  And even the effect on grad school aps is sometimes swamped by other forces. I'm pretty sure sure law school applications, for example, have been much lower in recent years than during the boom.

Unless the bump in applications was caused by a cynical marketing push aimed at poorly credentialed high schoolers with no shot at admission (which some schools have been accused of), this is great news for Case.

Case wasn't ranked #1.  The article on HuffPost states that Campus Pride ranked the list alphabetically as opposed to numerically.  However, in the slideshow, Case was the first photo (the photos were not alphabetized for some reason) so I can see where someone might think that.  Still, a good list to be on.

Good to see a short part of Case orientation video the students showcasing Cleveland a bit...even if it's only RRHOF and an Indians game.  Get them out of the Case bubble as soon as possible...starting at 2:40.

More global presence in University Circle:

Cleveland's economy may get a boost as international students flock to CWRU
Robert L. Smith, The Plain Dealer By Robert L. Smith, The Plain Dealer
on September 06, 2013 at 7:41 PM, updated September 08, 2013 at 7:29 AM
   

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Junpeng "J.P." Wang stepped off a plane in Cleveland two weeks ago nervous, excited and anticipating an adventure. He was 7,000 miles from his home in Shanghai, China, in a new city in a new world.

What he found on the campus of Case Western Reserve University surprised him.

"Too many Chinese," said the good-natured Wang, 19, who had hoped to try out his high school English on Americans, not other Mandarin-speakers.

Still, he met young people from India, Africa and Europe at orientation for international students, and phoned home with good news.

"They're all very interesting people," said Wang, one of about 1,200 incoming freshmen at CWRU. "I found out Case is a great school."

From that article.......

For the first time in memory, neither Cleveland nor Pittsburgh leads the list of top hometowns for entering freshmen at Case Western Reserve University. The top 10 hometowns of the Class of 2017 illustrates the new, big man on campus: China.

1. Beijing
2. Cleveland
3. Shanghai
4. Solon
5. Pittsburgh
6. San Jose, Calif
7. Cincinnati
8. Shaker Heights and Medina
9. New York City and Seoul, South Korea
10. Portland, Ore., Cleveland Heights and Brooklyn, N.Y

Too bad we can't keep these students here after they graduate, thanks to the GOP in Congress which refuses to embrace immigration reforms.

Big part of this, of course, is the definition of "hometown".  I'm surprised that Cleveland proper ranks even that high. If we went by county it would be different.

There has always been a major Chinese presence at CWRU, especially in the grad schools.  But "Beijing" not "Shanghai" says a lot.   Many of these kids' parent are likely Party officials.

Why? There are 400,000 people in Cleveland, and that's a third of the county. Private college classes are usually so geographically diverse that I'd bet that if even 20 or so kids from Cleveland went to Case, that would be enough for Cleveland to be the second most common hometown.

^My reaction was similar to Erocc's, but I think you're probably right.  The numbers for each of these jurisdictions are probably all pretty small. Without context, it's a pretty funny-looking list (when else is Shanghai followed by Solon?).

Also, "Cleveland" doesn't necessarily mean "CMSD" (although I will point out that the three "schools" at John Hay collectively send something like 90% of those kids to college).  There's a lot of economic and social diversity in the city, particularly on the west side.  I do alumni interviews for my alma mater (a very competitive school on the East Coast,) and every year I interview a surprising number of kids from West Park and Old Brooklyn, many of whom go to private high schools (especially Ignatius), though I have met more than a few CMSD students.

Absolutely.  I can't imagine that Solon High School sends more than 10-15 students each year to CWRU out of their graduating classes of 400-450.

If its going by USPS zip codes, its not even necessarily in the city limits. The 44121, 44143, 44124 zip codes among others, are considered '"Cleveland" by the USPS. I don't live in Cleveland but all my official mail comes listed as "Cleveland, Ohio" This is the case in several eastern suburbs and I imagine theres some on the westside that fall under this too.

I don't think that's the case because Shaker Heights is on the list, and their main zip code (44120) is listed as having the preferred city name of CLEVELAND OH by the USPS.

Another factor is going to be the increasing urbanization of the Chinese middle class while the opposite is happening in the US.  Five of those top twelve are metro Cleveland.   

But why one entry for NYC and another for Brooklyn?

^Brooklyn is Brooklyn, Queens is Queens, the Bronx is the Bronx, and NYC is Manhattan. This is--with the exception of Queens--also true for the postal system. In Queens, your address is usually the historic town that is now Queens, such as  "Long Island City, NY" or "Flushing, NY", not "Queens, NY". (Of course, politically, they and Staten Island are all NYC.)

Yeah, and Staten Island is Richmond County I believe.

As far as Brooklyn goes, you're correct, but statistically they still are from New York City.  Every other city on that CWRU list is an actual city, so I'm not sure why Brooklyn would be listed.
