'The Chinese Are Coming'

Section: 
Smart Title: 

BALTIMORE -- Carleton College has 18 new students from China this year, and they are paying about half of their own expenses. A handful of them don't need any financial aid at all. While Chinese graduate students are no shock on university campuses, significant cohorts of undergraduate applications from China are a new phenomenon at most colleges. Just a few years ago, Carleton had only three or four students enrolling from China, and it never enrolled students who could afford to pay their own way.

Smart Title: 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – For U.S. universities interested in internationalizing their campuses, China is the promised land. Almost invariably, as part of their internationalization strategies, U.S. universities have sought to develop exchange agreements, dual or joint degree options, and/or short-term study abroad programs in this country of more than a billion people. They’ve even tried to open branch campuses, albeit without much success.

Oops, We've Given That Test Before

Section: 
Smart Title: 

The Educational Testing Service is canceling all scores on the Graduate Record Examination from China this month because large portions of the test had been used in previous administrations of the exam.

While testing companies periodically have to cancel scores when a testing center makes an error or gives an incorrect version of a test, making an error throughout China has major ramifications. About 24,000 test takers -- most of them likely applicants to graduate schools in the United States -- took the GRE this month in China.
