It seems like going to a two campus system will eventually destroy one campus or the other - one will be perceived as better & more prestigious & the other will eventually wither.  With these two forces at play, which do you think that will be?

Well, if anything, the original campus, in Carlisle, will wither.  However, I think it will end up rather like Widener -- one for kids attempting to get into corporate law or other areas, and one for kids attempting to get into PA state government, since Carlisle is like a half hour to Harrisburg.  I think they'll both be fine.
