Whether or not UTEP reaches Tier 1 ranking does not matter. The people who rank universities do not live along the border and do not understand that few of the students attending the schools have families to raise, working not only for a living but working to pay for the education semester to semester. There are Police Officers and Firemen who attend UTEP and are getting their degree but they have to work around their schooling and it takes time. They cannot take 12-15 hours a semester as a full time student can. The body counters also do not take into account the number of students who are Community College and Junior college transfers and where some have to repeat courses which do not transfer over to UTEP.
