Colleges Unable to Hold Off Hordes of FreshmenS

Despite the fact that college degrees are worthless, kids these days are scrambling to attend any school, no matter how fake, out of desperation. The real victims: the colleges. What are they going to do with all you kids?

The University of Iowa has 'em coming out the ears:

While nearly every university overbooks each year, relying on sophisticated algorithms that predict just how many admitted students will probably go elsewhere, Iowa officials were surprised to learn this spring how far off they were in their math. This fall's freshman class is likely to have more than 400 more students than last year's, an unintended increase of about 10 percent

And 350 of them are from China! Hey, you'll love living in a hastily converted University of Iowa dorm lobby. Just like home!
