Those factors (T&B) exist everywhere. Quick Google search: Tulane grad rate is 83% (it does have some legit academic value). Hell, even Arizona State is 67%. Montana State is 53%, but in the counter argument, the non-resident grad rate is 60% so it is pulling that overall number up. Maybe Montana should start charging more of out-of-state tuition?I’m all for it, but think of the consequences of students picking college for Titties and Beer (Tulane), if students choose based on “things other than academics” you will have a bunch of adults living their lives. And if you are running the university do you want people having things to do to relieve stress.
Bro myopic view of academics.
Also people choose Montana because it’s cheap, MSU is cheaper out-of-state than CU is in-state.
