    :: Saturday, April 01, 2006 ::
    Wall Street Journal makes it official: George Mason U. rocks! From the article by Brendan Miniter:
    Mason began as an extension of the University of Virginia in 1957 and became independent 15 years later. Such relative youth is a clear advantage. The school came into its own after the 1960s generation passed through the halls of higher education. Student protest, and the effort to appease it, never became part of its culture.

    George W. Johnson, GMU's president from 1978 to 1996, exploited this advantage. He grounded the school in technology, computer science and economics, leaving to elite institutions the competition for hot (read: postmodern) humanities scholars. He also exploited the school's proximity to Washington, using it as a selling point to bring professors to the area and also pulling into the professorial ranks various policy analysts, intellectuals and former government officials.


    Mason's law school isn't even three decades old, but it has already climbed into the first tier of the U.S. News & World Report rankings....
