    I hesitate to be a spoilsport, but isn’t evolutionary biology still covered under “26.1399 Ecology, Evolution, Systematics and Population Biology, Other”?

    To Bruce Boyden,

    Not according to the NYT article: “Students cannot simply list something else on an application form, said Mr. Nassirian of the registrars’ association. `Your declared major maps to a CIP code,’ he said.”

    In order to evaluate the real-world impact, it sounds like we need to know how it’s determined what majors map to “Ecology, Evolution, Systematics and Population Biology, Other”. (Surely there aren’t any majors offered out there with exactly that name.)

    Of course, none of this changes the “snubbing” effect of deleting a major with “evolution” in the name.
