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 is an awesome place!  I mean, it's gotta be to convince someone to stay for 9 years and 3 degrees, lol.  :)

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.

Case scored 5 stars on everything except 4.5 on LGBT housing, so they may as well be #1.

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

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.)

New York City comprises all five boroughs.  Postal addresses don't matter when talking about what city you're from.

Manhattan is New York County.

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.

Yeah, the "NYC" and "BK" being separately listed doesn't make much sense unless the data reflect some kind of internal Case tracking system.  Which would actually make some sense.

The world has discovered Case Western Reserve University: editorial
Editorial Board By Editorial Board
on September 13, 2013 at 6:15 PM
   
A recent Plain Dealer article about the growing popularity of Case Western Reserve University among international students offers up an astounding fact: The most common hometown of the incoming freshmen this year is Beijing.

And Shanghai is third.

Foreign students in general account for about 12 percent of the 1,200-plus freshman class, up from about 3 percent in 2007. Overall enrollment is now about 20 percent international.

These are positive trends that didn't just happen by accident, but are part of a concerted effort by CWRU to expand the school's international reach, both in the research it conducts and the students it attracts.

The strategy is wise and the benefits many, not the least of which is to introduce bright, energetic students to Northeast Ohio, a region of the country that they might otherwise overlook.

Lets hope many of these students find more to like here than their education and decide Cleveland is a great place to live and work.

We had very strong Chinese, Korean, Indian, and Middle Eastern contingents when I was there during the early 80s.  Hell, there were kids from Iran (I don't just mean the expatriates) and Libya there during the Reagan era.

I don't think the world is discovering CWRU, I think the PD is.
