Well, we do a lot of advising about graduate schools; we can steer
students to other places. If a University is distinguished, gets called
a university because of its graduate programs, but graduates are
dissuaded from going there, that'd hurt. Especially since they're likely
to want to use more grads. to do more teaching because they're cheaper labor.
