I was told Marcus High School (Flower Mound, TX) alone has 85 freshmen enrolled at UofA this fall.  Eighty-five.

There are just short of 1,000 bitches going thru rush and over half of them are from the state of Texas.  Now is a good time to be a male at the University, really good odds...

For all it's problems and arrogance....Texan wimmens are among the finest in the country. Most of the hottest girls on campus in Fayetteville are from Texas.

As a sad side note, you people that don't have kids in Fayetteville High School have no idea how this has basically eliminated all parking on that campus, along with the construction projects. 

College kids and high school kids all competing for the same parking along with the city council's onerous fixation on fricking up all parking in downtown Fayetteville...... it is one giant FAIL.

I use to think UA was huge when attending there.  Then I went to work here at UF and finally went back to Fay to see my name in the walk and realized its actually quite small.  UF enrollment = 51K.  That alumni base makes a huge difference.

Of course, University of Phoenix has everyone beat with 300K enrolled.....

Remind me again about how great an idea it was for the UofA  to take over the land that FHS is on until FHS got greedy along with some of the local fucktards thinking that it was cool to continue to be located next to the university bemoaning a relocation.

They'll have to deck lot 67.  The fact they are bringing Hotz Hall out of mothballs is notable.

The community colleges are already bitching about how the amounts of lottery schollie money are distributed.

I love this town but it is one of the most "cliquey" towns you'll ever see.  I know well the faction of people who dominated this part of the discussion.  Their agenda was pretty much, in my opinion, based on sentimentality for their little slice of pie that they grew up with and some nebulous idea of academic co-existence.

Normal people, you know, the ones who didn't grow up in downtown and for the most part didn't inherit a bunch of property, pretty much feel fricked.

The Hogs winning the national championship next season sure won't help, then.

Too bad FPS can't reconsider.  It's fricked up.  That land would be a perfect addition to the UA.  With the growth in West Fayetteville (and lots of families in East Fayetteville) a high school in both areas would have been a perfect adjustment.

The UA is not giving their product away like UCA did.  Every scholarship they award is backed up by real money.

Supposedly, UT & A$M have adopted some extremely restrive admissions policies which have left some well qualified (academically) students without a lot of good 4 year state school options, especially if they're in north Texas.  They've got UNT and TWU close by, the latter still mostly women and nursing students.  UNT has a national rep in the arts but is perceived as a little weak in business and science.  Plus, it is sorta a commuter school.

So, these kids are choosing between Texas Tech, smaller Texas state schools, and UA & OU.  We are supposedly getting a lot of strong freshmen from north Texas.  My kids have friends from Lewisville, Plano, McKinney, even Highland Park.  I don't know if we are waiving out of state tuition for these kids but if so, UA would be a pretty attractive option.

Bingo.  Growth didn't screw UCA.  Massive financial mismanagement by their GOB network did.

*See the Top 10% Rule

The Top 10% of every graduating class in a Texas high school is automatically accepted into all Texas public schools. This causes a problem when someone goes to a school with a graduating class of 500+ with a lot of qualified applicants versus someone who went to a small high school with lax academic policies.

The University of Arkansas is raping and pillaging Texas high schools for their best and brightest. It looks like it is paying off.

GOB is right.  Dr. Stanton was the only member of the BOT who spoke up on some of that Lu mess and was rewarded by Beebe by not being reappointed to the board.

After watching that 30 on 30 thing, some of the SMU folks reminded of some of the UCA board.  They're only pissed that Lu got caught.  They still act like he did nothing wrong, or at least nothing they'd mind living with as long as enrollment numbers went up and more general budget money got shifted over to football (to disguise their massive losses).

The top 10% is causing Texas to hemorrhage these kids to out of state schools and they aren't figuring it out.  Texas has become almost impossible to get into if you aren't in that top 10% category.  A lot of people just don't like aTm because of the culture and location.  Tech isn't perceived as a good school.  In north Texas UA and OU seem like very reasonable options if you can get a tuition waiver.

I think a 3.0 and 24 on the ACT gets you in-state tuition to UA if you are a Texas resident.  I know a girl who had a 3.8 in HS and 31 on the ACT who transferred up there from UT-Arlington and I know another kid on the hockey team from Plano that was a competitive student.

It's nice because it's surging enrollment and giving the UA kids with good grades.

My son goes to a good private school in Arlington similar to PA in Little Rock.  Few kids there go to Texas simply because of the 10% rule.  It's easier to get into technically more competitive private schools.  TCU is very popular around here as well, but UA is cheaper.
