For the first time in its history, San Jose State University is rejecting qualified applicants. The San Jose Mercury News reported that while all eligible students from Santa Clara County were admitted, 4,400 from elsewhere in the state were told that they would have to enroll at other California State University campuses. University officials have been warning that they would be unable to meet the increased demand for slots, given the state's budget cuts.
