Why Foreign Students Are Crowding Out American College Kids


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Why is there a surge in foreign students being accepted into American universities. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“NEW HAVEN, Conn. — A major increase in international enrollment in recent years has intensified the competition for entry to America’s top private colleges and universities, as ever-growing numbers of applicants angle for the limited supply of seats.

That tension is particularly evident in the eight prestigious Ivy League schools: Federal data shows that their freshman classes grew slightly from 2004 to 2014 — 5 percent — while the number of incoming foreign students rose 46 percent. At the same time, applications to the schools shot up 88 percent.

At Yale University, where just 6 percent of 30,000 applicants are accepted, the foreign share of the freshman class has grown from single digits to 11 percent. As Yale’s undergraduate enrollment has edged upward since 2004, foreigners have accounted for almost all of the growth, reflecting a deliberate strategy to deepen Yale’s engagement with the world.”

      It’s not the degree its what you have a degree in. If you have a MBA is
      computer science with a minor of mechanical engineering you’re bound for
      work out of college because of the high demand in the job market. People go
      to college for degrees with low demand and complain about how degrees are
      useless. No what you majored in is useless in your area

    • Posted by Susan Raezer, at Reply

      Because foreign kids attend better schools, before they apply to our
      colleges. Other countries have colleges with higher educational standards,
      therefore they graduate with a better education, but their qualifications
      are harder, to meet.

    • Posted by Harmony Alexandria, at Reply

      They work harder but they are by no means smarter, and it’s a HUGE problem.
      There are a lot of foreign PhDs, who by all rights should not have an
      advanced degree – they crammed their way through school. What universities
      were designed to do was to nurture talent, they are incubators. You can not
      work your way to a talent or “gift”, ultimately you are “faking it”.

      Edison has it mostly right, except genius is 10%-20% inspiration and 80-90%
      perspiration. Grunt work is a question of dedication and perseverance, just
      about anyone motivated can do that part, but the 10-20% that requires
      inspiration? That’s very rare, and what makes the difference between
      success and failure, or worse yet(from a societal perspective) – how much
      actual innovation is taking place.

    • Posted by Harmony Alexandria, at Reply

      +rbrtchng – It’s still a huge problem, especially in Asia. The Chinese
      government is *trying* to crack down on intellectual dishonesty, but it’s
      systemic. India is horrific, corporations love India, their low-cost
      skilled labour utopia, but given the size of the lawsuits, they are very
      reluctant to outsource biomedicine there, doesn’t make economic sense.

    The sad truth is, due to our poor education system leading up to college,
    plus the fact that half the country is extremely conservative it seems (or
    near half of it), the average American is as dumb as a box of rocks. It’s
    depressing. :(

    • Posted by Chukwu, at Reply

      +Daniel Jones Now you are accusing conservatism of believing that global
      warming is false lmao.
      See your problem is you are committing the fallacy of Guilt By Association,
      as well as conflating people with a political ideology.
      You are acting under the preconception that Trump is a conserative and have
      a lot of confirmation bias against Conservativism with allows you to pair
      the actions of Trump with the ideology.
      Just being Trump does something doesn’t make it a conservative value.
      “The irrational fear that everybody is out to get them” Please show me some
      evidence to back up this claim. I’ll bite however, conserative are afraid
      of people like you false identifying them and calling them nationalistic
      and xenophobic through their associations.
      Once again none of these things have anything to do with conservatism or
      conservative values.

    • Posted by Chukwu, at Reply

      +Daniel Jones​​ I’m just here to call out your piss poor logic.
      Your claim is that conservatism is anti-intellectual and you prove this NOT
      BY USING THE VALUES OF CONSERVATIVISM but by your percieved thoughts of how
      you think Conservatives act without even regarding if their actions are
      reflective of their political ideology.
      Basically your a bigot.
      With that same reasoning, I can attribute terrorism with the Islam ideology
      because I can point to a majority of Islamic terrorist attacks around the
      world(Not what I believe in, I’m just using this example to prove how
      idiotic your claims are)

      The Tea Party emerged from the remains of Ron Paul’s presidential campaign
      in 2008. But they soon changed and became the anti-black-president movement
      – inherently racist. The GOP now had a decision to make: how did they want
      to deal with those racists? They decided to pander to them. Same did Trump
      with his Birther movement.
      The GOP paid a price for this. Today, they cannot be called “conservatives”
      anymore. There are little to no conservative values left, and the Tea Party
      “values” have taken over. “President” Trump is the embodiment of this

      Now, what does that have to do with “stupid people voted for Trump”? Well,
      everyone who voted for Trump obviously endorses him, and there are really
      only three groups of people who can do that: 1) amoral rich people looking
      forward to all the tax cuts; B) racists; and C) stupid people who were
      unable to see what Trump really is. People can belong to two or even all
      three of these groups; but there is no fourth group.

      +BartJ583 “Everyone who voted Trump obviously endorses him.”
      See that’s your problem, you believe that the only reason why someone would
      vote for Trump is being they support them.
      Stop being so 1 dimensional.
      There are a VARIETY OF reasons why people voted for Trump.
      This election being proof as previously blue states turned Red this year.
      Some people voted for Trump as a boycott, some voted for Trump because of
      Hillary’s corruptiom, some people voted for Trump just for the wall, some
      people voted for Trump because of what the DNC did to Bernie, some people
      voted for Trump because they are tired of being falsely accused of “racist,
      sexist, bigotted, xenophobic homophobes”, and the list goes on.
      It’s people like you who don’t even understand why Trump won which will
      guarantee his reelection…

      +BartJ583​ I mean how dumb can you be, this election is being remembered as
      “the lesser of two evils” for a reason. The 2 candidates are arguably the
      worse people running for president in a long time but the only thought that
      crosses through your mind is that “people who voted for Trump endorse
