Re: Logan High Sargent to WYO!

According to Wikipedia (I know, take it with a few grains of salt), Wyoming has the largest endowment in the MWC at $550.9 million (and second smallest enrollment), with a nearly $100 million lead over New Mexico. USU is third at $375.4 million. Given our lack of law and medicine graduate programs,...
