I think App St is fine as a Academic School

but they are definitely not getting in the Big1G who only takes AAU schools and the ACC while not all AAU has enough Academic snobbyness not to take WVU. WVU is a great Academic school. They have a mandate to support the entire state of WV so some areas of the state with crappy high school academics can drag down WVU's overall rating. Does not mean you can not find great Academic programs at WVU? Nope .... they have a lot of great Academic programs ECU has a mandate to serve the Eastern Part of the State and again some rural areas have lousy High School's but like WVU, ECU has some great Academic Programs . App St is in the same boat. Schools that are completely obsessed with their Academic ranking will only take incoming Freshman who help that ranking well at least for Freshman year. I was accepted into UVA and UNC after a couple years at ECU but neither one of them would have sniffed me as a High School Senior. I am in the camp that other than specific specialty degree programs mostly that require licensing that College is completely over rated and a waste of money.
