Open enrollment means a lot of people are going to college who should not because they are not prepared for it. It is a huge problem that will actually hold a university BACK in its seeking Research-1 status. Too complicated to explain here. Also, regarding Trinity, it's the number one school in its classification as a Master's school. There are many many better schools that offer MA degrees in the West (e.g., all of the UC schools), but they are not in the private/regional/MA category, so Trinity's press that you quoted is misleading.

Yeah, I do not believe I mentioned anything about being research 1 tier or anything besides enrollment rates. Can we just stay on that?

Ok, let's stay on topic then. UT Austin is a Research intensive, competitive, world class institution, the largest in the USA. UTSA is an open enrollment cattle call that is ranked below UT Arlington. UTSA is fourth tier.

Moderator cut: personal attack

Topic:

UTSA being the fastest growing University in Texas.

Topic did not include:

1. Any other Universities.

2. Research rankings.

Moderator cut: personal attack

And please stop trying to compare UTSA with those other two, why? Simply put, UTSA opened in 1969 those other two, both over a hundred and ten years ago.

UTSA is a child still compared to those two.

But UTSA keeps getting grants?
