    On a related note, I did not realize that Everglades University recently made the transition from NA to RA.

    I used to work there, and this is truly astonishing news to me. I guess Dr. Keiser figures that once you've made a billion dollars or so, hey, you can afford to be magnanimous?

    Could be that, or it could be that they are going to be "nonprofit" in the same way a number of giant medical insurance carriers, or so-called debt counseling services are... through a network of consultancies and contractors, they essentially run exactly the same as a for-profit, bleeding off assets through overpriced outsourcing, but with the veneer of respectability that comes with the nonprofit status.

    Hopefully it's not the case, but I'm always a little skeptical when I hear of a for-profit going nonprofit.
