That's what happens with less applications while maintaining 29,000

students. Either get the number of applications up or cut enrollment. It's just a numbers game. If you cut enrollment, you will have less funding which equals less programs and less jobs.

I believe we waived the $75 application fee. I'm not sure that is still in effect or not, but that is a great way to drive up the number of applications. More applications, lower acceptance rate.

Acceptance rate is just a numbers game. US News dropped the acceptance rate from their rankings because it isn't relevant. The biggest issue with acceptance rate is the public perception. We need to recruit more applications to drive this number down.
