RE: Record Number of Applicants, enrollment to swell
Figured this thread was a good spot to post this, but this is the list of the top Ohio feeder schools to Miami. Only 4/10 or 8/20 are Greater Cincinnati schools. Last I checked 9/10 of our biggest feeder schools were all in Greater Cincinnati (the one odd was a Dayton area school). It seems like they pull in my kids from the Columbus suburbs than we do but I don’t have UC’s list in front me of to compare.

For continued growth of enrollment and UC’s brand statewide I think we should be hitting the Central Ohio suburbs more.

I'd push back a bit on whether we need continued enrollment growth, but absolutely agree about making a more concerted push into districts like Dublin, Worthington, Olentangy, Hilliard etc. in order to increase our applicants and selectivity.

Related - I did read that Olentangy Liberty sent 50 freshman to UC last year, so the building blocks are certainly there.

One would think there is a contingent of Columbus kids who want to go away fro college. No reason UC should not be the top in-state alternative to OSU.

I definitely think we're getting there. Every year, the selectivity gap between UC and Miami shrinks. There will always be those kids to whom Miami is just a good fit--predominately children of alums who've been brainwashed with the "public ivy" nonsense their entire lives or future preppy business major greek members who want to go somewhere where everybody else is a preppy business major greek. Outside of those two groups, there is no reason we can't fight Miami for every kid, and if it's a kid wanting to major in a STEM discipline, there's no reason that we shouldn't be an easy choice over Miami.

Anecdotal but my cousin is my age (26) and she graduated from Gahanna Lincoln in Columbus and went to OU. She said that Gahanna Lincoln sends a ton of kids to UC. She visited me one time while we were both in college still and I walked her around campus and she ran into like 5+ people she knew from high school. That was just walking around on a really dead day on campus too. I can't imagine how many people she would have known had it been a time in-between classes in the Fall.

They somehow predictably and pathetically manage to jam in the "public ivy" thing, but here's an interesting article where they actually acknowledge that their acceptance rate is higher than UC's. Their freshman class profile is still better than UC's, but that will change by the end of this decade I predict. If their Chicago pipeline is closing up, then they're forced to scramble for OSU's in-state rejects. In state, we are so much better positioned for most kids, particularly STEM seeking kids. UC admins really need to take advantage of this moment to up our statewide recruitment game.

By comparison, OSU's acceptance rate is just under 50%. If we could get ours around 67%, we really drive home the fact that we are one of Ohio's two most sought after and prominent public research universities.

Miami Is Living On Fumes

EDIT: It took me a second viewing, but I do love the symbolism of the handicap sign in front of the building. They're an academic cripple sitting in their wheelchair reminiscing about their PUBLIC IVY glory that happened before their current students were even born.
