OU boasts reverse trend in high-achieving applicants
(2008-06-04)
(WOUB) - The Associated Press reported Ohio educators are saying more of this year's class of high-achieving seniors are heading to out-of-state colleges and universities.

But that's not the case at Ohio University according to Admissions Director Dave Garcia, who says says it's just the opposite.

Garcia says more high-ability students are applying at OU and being accepted.

He says what's happening elsewhere may be price-related.

Garcia says OU is bucking the trend because of the scholarships being offered.
