I object very strongly to this entire discussion thread.  We are all
suffering declines in student applications, and are all tempted to do
whatever it takes to improve our enrollment figures.  But there are
limits.  We cannot and should not start printing students. 

I mean, *if* we were to go down that road, I think an Asiga Pico Plus
would be the absolute minimum needed (See:
https://www.asiga.com/products/pico/).  But it's just not ethical, and
in the end, fools no one.
