UH 36.1%
UNT 33.6%

#3

It’s the 8th year in a row that Houston has finished third in the state in the total number of freshmen enrollees who graduated Top 10% of their HS class…


(Patrick) #4

Awesome. We continue to improve.


#5

Those enrollment numbers when stacked against total enrollment also indicate the large number of drop outs Texas State has, with Tech coming up behind them.


#6

UT Dallas is another school that belongs on these lists, and we compare pretty favorably against them.


#7

I limited it to football schools.

We don’t compare favorably with UT Dallas except on size.

On the front end, their freshmen have higher SAT scores and a larger proportion of them graduated Top 10% of their HS class.

On the back end, their graduation rate is much higher than ours.


#8

I guess favorably wasn’t the right word. Academically they’re probably the stronger school, yet we’re only 3% behind them in terms of top 10% enrolled percentage despite having a much larger class size. Top 25% we have some catching up to do though.

I wish TECB reported SAT stats. I’d like to see if we’ve gained any ground on that front.


#9

Averaging the SAT 75/25 percentiles for reading and math from the Common Data Set. Note the SAT scores were inflated a couple of years ago under a new scale. We gained about 70 points:

Texas 1355
UT Dallas 1330
A&M 1275
TCU 1245
Oklahoma 1245
Houston 1220
Arkansas 1195
LSU 1180
Oklahoma St 1170
North Texas 1160
Texas Tech 1155
New Mexico 1145
UTSA 1130
Texas State 1095

I would not be surprised if UT wasn’t offering it’s top tier rejected candidates the chance (and maybe scholarship money) to go to UT Dallas.
