“On average, colleges that moved to a new league saw about a 3-percent decrease in their admit rate (meaning they became more selective) and a 5-percent increase in their admission yield rate (more admitted students enrolled) three years after joining the new conference. The ACT scores of incoming students increased by more than .29 points. And the colleges saw a net gain of about 130 applications per year three years after their moves.
The biggest winners of realignment from 2004-2011? It appears the schools that jumped from the Big East to the ACC such as Boston College and Virginia Tech.”
I guess the association with the Iowa and Kansas States of the world will really help take FSU to the top.
But we all know FSU doesn’t care about that. Stupid academics…
