Interesting. I looked at the EIU undergrad programs. They have a whole bunch of Pre-this and Pre-that. I think sometimes, 4 years schools look in the mirror and see themselves as the culmination in one's education when, in reality, they should be more of a stepping stone to career objectives.

I think they have achieved what the new Pres wants for Western. I.E., programs which are distinctive and put you on the map.
