According to the Wall Street Journal, Mayor Bloomberg plans to announce that Cornell’s won the competition for an applied-science campus in NYC. They beat out the rest of the “shortlist,” which was down to Carnegie-Mellon, NYU, Cornell, and us, after Stanford dropped out on Friday.

Not all hope is lost; even if Bloomberg awards Roosevelt Island to Cornell, we could still score some cush government funds for M’ville. Since our proposal didn’t include any of the three locations Bloomberg suggested, if we get funding, we’d still receive more or less what we wanted to gain in the first place.

Seems like all New York is gettin’ gobbled up by universities these days.
