  1. This story is somewhat confusing. Are you saying that the “show-up rate” at UB (the percentage of accepted students who actually attend the school) had one of the highest increases in the Country last year over the previous year, or that the absolute number of students enrolling in the first year class at UB had one of the highest increases in the Country over the absolute number of students enrolling in the previous year. In describing UB, you use the language of absolute numer (i.e., “enrollment”), but in discussing schools with the highest rate of whatever it is you are talking about you also use the language of show-up rate (i.e., “accepted students enrolling”). The fact that UVA and Georgia State are the national leaders in whatever factor you are talking about, should give you a pretty good idea that the factor does not necessarily say anything about the quality of a school. In a tough economy people can choose a school in greater numbers (to simplify), either because they think it will give them a better chance of getting a job upon graduation, or because it is less expensive than other schools, will keep their debt lower, and reduce the need to get a high paying job upon graduation. The first of these factors is a compliment to the school, the second less so.
