What admissions is looking for in applicants

TCU’s acceptance rate dropped from 48.87% in 2014 to 47.12% in 2019 as the number of applicants increased. The biggest drop came in 2016 when only 37.58% of total applicants were admitted. Compared to 2014, TCU has seen 1,999 more applicants for fall 2019. “Our goal is to enroll classes each year that improve our academic profile and continue to push the boundaries of inclusivity,” Einstein said. “If we achieve that goal year after year, selectivity will follow.” As the next round of admissions begins, TCU admissions counselors will focus on their goal of being a “destination college.” “A destination college is a place students point to as the ‘hot’ college in their high school communities,” Einstein said. Garrett James, a first-year movement science major, said he decided to come to TCU because he knew he could succeed. “I saw TCU more as a catalyst for my career and myself,” James said, “someplace where I can build myself and create great opportunities to succeed.” This year, Einstein said the admissions office expects to see between 18,000 and 20,000 applications for the class of 2024. “The Rose Bowl was when we first started to see a boost [in applications],” said David Stein, the associate director for freshman admission. Stein said the number has remained consistent over years past and they are anticipating the same number this year. The incoming first-year class has been receiving many forms of communication from TCU as they move through high school, including print and digital collateral, Einstein said. “It is geared to address students’ various needs, from academics to internships to scholarship and aid,” Einstein said. To attract students from outside of Texas, admissions counselors travel to 40 states each year. Admissions counselors tend to get a great response when visiting high schools, whether there are 50 students or only one, Stein said. “If I meet with one student at a high school who is great and decides that TCU can be home, then it’s a great visit,” Stein said. TCU also offers campus tours year-round to draw in students. “When out-of-state students visit campus, they are met with friendly students as well as faculty and staff who are willing to extend themselves to prove what warm a community this is,” Einstein said. Stein said admissions counselors pitch TCU by showing how genuine they are and what TCU has to offer. “We’re lucky enough to be a rare breed, so we talk a lot about TCU’s size and experience,” Stein said. In addition, TCU representatives travel to dozens of foreign countries each year to search for future Horned Frogs. While TCU does not send the same amount of print material to international students, its messages are largely similar. These messages promise a global community, which appeals to prospective TCU students, regardless of their hometown.  TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Previous articleFootball faces quarterback uncertainty heading into Baylor gameNext articlePatterson: No more ‘style points’ to make CFP Nikki Spellman RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Nikki Spellmanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/nikki-spellman/ Nikki Spellmanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/nikki-spellman/last_img read more

Local businesses benefit from €760,000 grant aid

first_imgWATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads  by Kathy [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up LIMERICK City and County Council’s Local Enterprise Office (LEO) approved funding of €764,374 for 37 business proposals last year.The grants are designed to help with innovation costs, labour research, consultancy and other related costs.To qualify, businesses must employ less than ten staff and show indications of growth.“I am delighted to see strong figures for our Local Enterprise Office in its first year. I think a more strategic and local focus on enterprise support will reap significant rewards in the long term. We have a responsibility locally to foster a healthy business environment with more of a focus on the small to medium sized business,” said local Fine Gael councillor Daniel Butler.“With €511,026 allocated to 43 approved businesses coupled with the grant aid and refundable aid of €157,000, I hope we see a return on this investment in 2015. We are still in a volatile recovery process nationally and internationally so these investments locally are a key strategy for local economic growth”, he said.There were 68 training and development events organised, comprising of courses, seminars, networking events and covering topics such as: start your own business, marketing, finance, social media, tendering, and retail development.“I would encourage local business people to attend these worthwhile events. I know when you have a hectic schedule these events tend to be at the bottom of the to-do list but all businesses need to look at continued development and how to maintain competitiveness,” Cllr Butler concluded.

Put simply, Point2 Homes affordability ratio estimates how long it would take to pay off a median home in each of the markets, if a homebuyer were somehow able to put their entire annual income toward paying off that total.In both Manhattan and San Francisco—the second and third most unaffordable markets in North America, respectively, according to the report—the median home selling prices are both in the neighborhood of $1.2 million. However, the median family income for each city is different. In Manhattan, it’s ($77,559), meaning it would take approximately 15.6 years to pay off a median home. In San Francisco, the median income is significantly higher at $92,094, meaning a median home could be paid off in 13.8 years. Given that pretty much no one is capable of funneling their entire annual income solely toward housing, this should give you an idea of just how unaffordable these cities actually are.Brooklyn, New York, Los Angeles, Boston, San Jose, Seattle, and San Diego round out the rest of the top 10 most unaffordable North American cities.There are many contributors to affordability, not the least of which is availability. In the decade following the economic crisis of 2007-08, the number of potential home buyers grew but inventories shrank, adversely affecting first-time buyers. As demand exceeded supply, the advantage belonged to sellers.In Manhattan, first-time buyers have been affected by persistently low inventory, and prices have also been driven up more than 30 percent by rising development costs and a trend toward more luxury buildings. The situation in San Francisco is a little different. The median income there is the nation’s highest, so the market may not be as susceptible if the mortgage deduction is cut, but there remains concern about the impact of the federal tax reduction plan, and inventories there also have remained low.On the other end of the spectrum, Detroit takes the distinction of being the most affordable market in North America. The median home price in the Motor City is $48,000. Unfortunately, the median family income is only $25,980. With those numbers, a family putting all their income toward paying off a median home in Detroit could do so in less than two years.You can explore the rest of Point2 Homes’ data, and find out where your city ranks in home affordability, by clicking here.

Wells Fargo, After Sloan

Sloan will step down at the end of June.C. Allen Parker, Wells Fargo’s General Counsel, will serve as interim CEO and President while the bank searches for a long-term replacement.“In my time as CEO, I have focused on leading a process to address past issues and to rebuild trust for the future,” Sloan said in a statement. “We have made progress in many areas and, while there remains more work to be done, I am confident in our leadership team and optimistic about the future of Wells Fargo.” He added that his resignation came in part because “our ability to successfully move Wells Fargo forward from here will benefit from a new CEO and fresh perspectives. For this reason, I have decided it is best for the Company that I step aside and devote my efforts to supporting an effective transition.”“Tim Sloan has served this company with pride and dedication for more than 31 years, including in his role as CEO since October 2016,” said Wells Fargo Board Chair Betsy Duke in a statement. “He has worked tirelessly over this period for all of our stakeholders in the best long-term interest of Wells Fargo.”Sloan’s announcement comes only days after several senators, including Senators Elizabeth Warren, Ranking Member of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Protection, and Sherrod Brown, Ranking Member of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee, called for limitations on Wells Fargo’s growth to remain in place until such time as Sloan was no longer the company’s President and CEO.Sloan had recently appeared before Congress himself, addressing the House Financial Services Committee to discuss the bank’s progress in providing reparations related to past scandals and how the bank is working to improve its culture and better serve its customers.The hearing stemmed back to 2016, when the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), and Los Angeles City Attorney fined Wells Fargo Bank collective penalties of $185 million for opening millions of deposit and credit-card accounts in customers’ names without their consent or knowledge. The CFPB and OCC imposed the bank with civil money penalties and demanded restitution to harmed customers.In this month’s hearing, Sloan claimed the bank has worked toward a change in leadership, culture, and practices. He pointed out that Wells Fargo has created the required ethics training for all team members titled “Change for the Better.” He also added that he “cannot promise perfection” but suggested that the changes implemented will act as a deterrent to further issues. “We’ve made fundamental changes,” Sloan said. “I can give personal assurance the bank will comply with consent decrees.” March 28, 2019 3,178 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Wells Fargo, After Sloan Sign up for DS News Daily center_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News David Wharton, Managing Editor at the Five Star Institute, is a graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington, where he received his B.A. in English and minored in Journalism.

California man sentenced to 30 days in jail for fatally shooting protected mountain lion

first_imgiStock(LOS ANGELES) — A California man has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and other penalties for the killing of a protected mountain lion over the summer.Alfredo Gonzalez, 60, of Simi Valley, was sentenced Thursday immediately after he pleaded guilty to fatally shooting the cougar, known as P-38, and vandalizing its GPS collar back in July, according to the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office.In addition to the 30 days in Ventura County Jail, a judge sentenced Gonzalez to serve 30 days in a work release program, 240 hours of community service at an animal shelter, three years of probation and to pay a fine $150. The judge also declared the rifle Gonzalez used to shoot the mountain lion a nuisance and ordered it to be destroyed, according to the district attorney’s office.Gonzalez could not be reached for comment Friday.P-38 was part of a cougar population being studied by National Park Service biologists, according to the district attorney’s office. First collared in 2015, the 7-year-old male mountain lion predominately roamed parts of the Santa Susana Mountains, which surround Simi Valley in Southern California.The biologists detected a mortality signal from the animal’s collar on July 2. The body of P-38 was later found in the Simi Valley area with a gunshot wound to the head, according to the district attorney’s office. Its GPS collar, valued at $950, had been vandalized, too, according to the office.It’s unlawful to kill a mountain lion in the state without a permit from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

The significance of the moult cycle to cold tolerance in the Antarctic collembolan Cryptopygus antarcticus

first_imgResearch into the ecophysiology of arthropod cold tolerance has largely focussed on those parts of the year and/or the life cycle in which cold stress is most likely to be experienced, resulting in an emphasis on studies of the preparation for and survival in the over-wintering state. However, the non-feeding stage of the moult cycle also gives rise to a period of increased cold hardiness in some microarthropods and, as a consequence, a proportion of the field population is cold tolerant even during the summer active period. In the case of the common Antarctic springtail Cryptopygus antarcticus, the proportion of time spent in this non-feeding stage is extended disproportionately relative to the feeding stage as temperature is reduced. As a result, the proportion of the population in a cold tolerant state, with low supercooling points (SCPs), increases at lower temperatures. We found that, at 5 degrees C, about 37% of the population are involved in ecdysis and exhibit low SCPs. At 2 degrees C this figure increased to 50% and, at 0 degrees C, we estimate that 80% of the population will have increased cold hardiness as a result of a prolonged non-feeding, premoult period. Thus, as part of the suite of life history and ecophysiological features that enable this Antarctic springtail to survive in its hostile environment, it appears that it can take advantage of and extend the use of a pre-existing characteristic inherent within the moulting cycle.last_img read more
