Tulsa accepts 39% but only 21% of the 39% actually go there. Admissions yield (those who actually go there) is the unseen number on college admissions.

Harvard's yield is 82%, the nation's best. If you're admitted to Harvard, chances are you're going there unless Stanford or maybe Yale is calling.

By contrast, the yield at St. John's is 11%, meaning that for every 10 kids accepted there, one shows up.

I've never thought about admissions yield, but that's a good point.

One problem is that most of the colleges and universities that are private are not going after non-traditional students who are not between the age of 18 to 22. If they opened up to older people to get degrees? The enrollment could go up at these schools. These small privates including Tulsa, need to change the models to get older non-traditional students.

It seems unlikely that the guy who is 70th guy on a D2 or lower roster as a freshman expects to finish his college career as the 70th guy on the roster.

But that's also the extreme case. If most of the guys who are 70th on the roster are "true walk-ons" and the recruited players are mostly first and second string, the number of football players means if only half of the team had the ability to play football figure into their final choice of schools and the rest made a list of schools where they could hope to walk on and then made their final school decision for other reasons, that's still a tuition revenue benefit at a school that is not admitting the maximum size class they have the capacity to admit.

Extreme case? I've been told these D2 schools often have 110-man rosters, so I picked "70" as kind of a mid-point between the 35 or so guys who are starters or close to it and thus getting scholarships and the 110th guy who is milking cows.

Nor do I think that anyone is going to pay $30k a year to start their 'career' as the 70th guy on the roster, and spend that amount over 3 more years in the hopes that after two or three years on the pine and $90k spent, they will finally break in to the starting lineup at North Stovepipe Dixie Tech as a junior or senior.

If they're planning on going to college, that $30,000 is being spent no matter what, if they want to continue playing football, they'll pick a school with D2 or D3 football.

It's not like the decision for these kids is a a D2 school with football vs getting a job right out of high school.

Someone can believe whatever they want to believe but the reality is that it is in fact happening.

PHP Code:
Football 2018 Season

Division    Teams    Players    Avg    Scholarship    Avg Athletic
                             Team size    limit       Scholarship
NCAA II     166      18491      111        36            5875
NCAA III    248      25672      104        
-             -
NAIA        90       9185       102        24            7570 

That's 53,348 players on 504 teams paying some or all of their college expenses knowing this will most likely be the end of the football road for them. Some might never see any playing time but they all still do for any of a variety of reasons. I did it and others on this board either did it or know someone who did it.

More than 1M kids play high school football but less than 0.2% will ever make a NFL roster; maybe go and ask them why they play.

AZCats,

Can you also put in D-I?

It should be note almost all D-II and even many FCS scholarships are not full scholarships.

Division    Teams    Players    Avg    Scholarship    Avg Athletic
                             Team size    limit       Scholarship
FBS         130      15225      118        85            23236
FCS         125      13127      105        63            13417 

As Stugray2 noted; D2 and NAIA scholarships are equivalencies, meaning 72 D2 players or 48 NAIA players per team can have 1/2 scholarship. It should also be noted that very few D2 and NAIA schools offer the maximum, some have less than 10 scholarships. FBS is headcount while FCS is equivalency with a maximum of 85 headcount (41 full-ride + 44 half-ride).

It looks like that even at the FBS level there are about 30 players per team paying $30,000 a year to walk-on and hope they can get any playing time or a scholarship. Just look at Rudy and Notre Dame.

Did I say anything about athletics? I used them as an example what could happen with these small schools with athletics.

1) I was only stating that these were two distinct, separate, and unrelated schools.

2) So; you're comparing a private school that offers degrees only in Art, Film, Printmaking, Photography, Painting, and Sculpture to 400 undergrad students with no athletics to schools who offer degrees in a variety of fields with athletics. You can't compare an apple to an orange.

That's the second time I've seen that posted here, and it is baffling, as it is just not true. There are plenty of places a kid can go to college for way, way, way less than $30,000 a year.

Be careful about what you claim is "in fact happening". Are kids going to D2 and D3 and NAIA schools and paying tuition and room and board and playing football? Yes.

But that's not the issue, the issue is "are they going to those schools to play football", IOW's, if the schools didn't have football, they wouldn't have gone to that school and the school would have lost their attendance money.

And your charts do not show that anyone is doing that. They might be or might not be, but the charts don't tell us either way.

On the other hand there are plenty of non-football players going to 30,000 plus a year schools that would be better served going to a much cheaper school given their major and aptitude.
