    Everyone knows Sally Mason is such a fabulous coach that her enrollment just gets better as the year goes on, if only the official count was in November the Hoks would win.

    ISU has never won most enrollment in the conference and just care about their enrollment compared to the Hoks (little brother who is bigger?).

    Hoks are number 1, best party school all that matters.

    Hoks purposely wanted enrollment lower so they can rebuild buildings once again next to a river that floods.

    You were doing well but the last sentence got a little EMAW for me.

    And projections have us continuing to grow!

    As another poster pointed out, some key numbers are new Iowa students, we are blowing them away. Year after year, we will continue to grow our brand. Also, ALOT of U of Is students are professional (med and law).

    I work in a group that helps recruit students through the admissions office and I wouldnt say it was capped this year, they are definitely emphasizing out of state students.

    So you are arguing that UI's decreased enrollment is due to a larger emphasis on out-of-state students this year?

    In 2012, 47% of UI's incoming first-years were in-state (Source)

    In 2013, that number is 48%. (Source)

    So UI is failing at getting more out-of-staters worse than they are failing at getting more in-staters, which is already horrible.

    Try again

    I'm not trying to **** on your point, because growing the brand in state should be first and foremost, but it wouldn't be bad to be able to point to other states as a good source for students when it comes to TV money. Iowa has relatively stagnant population numbers from what I have read before on here, so eventually to really grow the brand, eventually looking out of state might not be a bad idea. That being said though, I wouldn't do it at the cost of enrollment for in-state kids. Own your state is a good top priority.

    Re: official enrollment numbers

    For the Fall Class of 2011, ISU started giving students an admission decision within 48 hours of the application. Iowa State's conversion rate (applicant to enrollment) went up from 58% to 64% that year and 65% in 2012; 2013 data not avialable yet. ISU admissions attributes the spike largely to that program although it was part of a larger admissions/marketing plan that ISU implemented to perfection, still using, and it is paying off in spades. That 6% increase resulted in an increase of instate students by 300 despite having an actual decrease in total instate applicants.

    U Iowa has seen their conversion rate stay steady at 56%. The U Iowa pres was not happy that ISU was starting to kick Iowa's butt, so she told U Iowa admissions to copy what ISU is doing and they did. Iowa now offers a 48 hour decision.

    ISU is so far ahead of Iowa in terms of admissions, marketing, enrollment management. etc. This is largely because ISU actually has solid leadership at the top.

    Once Brandstad sees these numbers he will bring Marvin Pomerantz back from the dead and they will force ISU to sell off the college of Ag.
