There is an updated Annual Statistical Report that I want to share with you. It provides by International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS).

Here is the link: http://www.international.umn.edu/about/facts/isss_annual_report_jul08.pdf

I am very impressed by the numbers and figures in the report. I can see the trend is that the U is recruiting more Asian students. And among all the countries, China ranks the first.
