The Times reported a drop in applications to NYC schools after 9/11.
If high school families start to hear that rural, isolated, frigid Cornell is not safe, applications will drop like my grades in Chem 207!
At least you didn't say that applications will drop like students with bad grades in Chem 207.
(I still have the slug of left-over thermite reaction product I bought at Wolczanski's last day of class auction of the stuff he made in class. For me, anyway, that class should have been captioned, You are not as smart as you thought you were.)
