"The system has a total enrollment of over 190,000 students. Its flagship institution is the University of Texas at Austin.
The university system had an operating budget of $10 billion in 2007, with research expenditures totaling over $1.8 billion."

"Same can be said of other large school entities - Tex A&M and Baylor, for example."

These are very impressive numbers, and one may say, overwhelming as well. Here's me, a humble guy who came up with an idea, implemented it, and genuinely believe it would benefit many many students, question is, how to reach a small percentage of them who's most likely immediately see its value, embrace it, and then we go from here. Thanks ppl.

Uh...have you not seen the way California's university system is setup? The Cal States and University of Cali systems demolish UT's and A&M's. I am betting you don't have a clue about their system. They have a lot more Tier 1 universities than Texas does (we have two, UT and A&M, and they have 8 on the University of Cali system alone). Somehow, I knew someone with no knowledge on Cali's system would try to bring out the broke argument. Figures.

Just a quick note, thank you all for the wonderful insights and info bits, keep it coming... yeah I'm greedy in that sense.

And your thoughts on the following?

Strategy A
go to the tier 2 first, sort of testing ground, once proven, it's well received and picked up a few things here and there go after tier 1 ... less risky bet

Strategy B
go to the tier 1 first, you sort of altruism yourself and you bet the brightest ones are more likely to pick up what's truly valuable and meaningful to them and their feedback would be more useful as well, then "conquer" the rest would seem not big obstacle... more risk more reward

Strategy C
going after both tiers at the same time, and see which category would fair better, make changes quickly / adapt quickly to meet with the unplanned/unexpected... risk and calculation

Deeply indebted,

Tier's don't mean anything. It is only about how much money the college has. UT's main campus is blagh in almost every way yet it is rich. I don't get that? Somebody explain.

Easy explanation. You are a mentally deranged person who hates everything Austin. You might be the biggest ******* of all the messageboards in the history of the internets.

Hope that helps!

The place is looking more and more like Gaza minus the beautiful beach.
