Interesting post.  I wonder why this is the case with these smaller
schools (UVSC, USU).  My theory would be that people who are eager to
get into the workforce and make some money more quickly gravitate
towards smaller/less expensive schools with the intent to get through
quickly and cheaply.  Do these people represent the more practical and
ambitious of our populous?

I'm not smearing the value of a deep, thorough education, but I do
think there are those who love to learn and those who love to apply
what they have learned.  Some schools may be more agreeable to the
later group of "go getters".
