Dunno. I'm sure there could be individual programs at Lehigh that are top notch, and I'm definitely not saying you need to go to an Ivy or top name to school to be successful. Merely talking about the caliber of students it makes sense for Penn to target, which is what dictates enrollment, size, and growth. This building is coming along nicely. I like it.
