It's easy to put out these numbers and feel good about UC's prospects, but at the same time, some additional information would paint a much clearer picture.

Other pieces of information that would have been helpful:
- 1st year retention rate (from the previous year)
- 5-6 year graduation rate

Here's info from UC's 2016-2017 Common Data Set.
https://www.uc.edu/content/dam/uc/provos...ta_Set.pdf

Notes:

6 year grad rate for incoming students 2009: 65%
6 year grad rate for incoming students 2010: 67%

Freshmen Retention Rate 2015: 87.9%

Plus other interesting info in regards to applications received, acceptance rate, enrollment rate, test scores, etc...

Everything I've heard from their office in meetings I've had with their leadership makes me think they're seeing numbers tracking towards 90% which is an extremely good number this coming year. For reference, the national average is around 70%, give or take, depending on the year.

It's also important because retention and graduation rates now trigger extra funding from the state.

Yep...only about 50% of funding is based on immediate headcount these days. That's why you'll see more than a few 4-years in Ohio be down in headcount but up in academic quality indicators this year.

An update on this story, the girl who alleged she was raped has now filed a separate action against UC for "deliberate indifference to student-on-student assault". In other words, she is alleging UC failed to get the accused off campus in a timely manner.

This girl is seeking financial compensation for UC not expelling this student (who was never convicted of a crime) fast enough.

We as a society are very fortunate to have so many selfless lawyers willing to pursue "justice," while only asking for money in return.
It wouldn't be surprising to see UC lose or settle both sides of this. That's the current state of Title IX.
