What is the academic strength of each SEC school?



I was having a discussion about what each SEC school could use to sell their university when recruiting.

LSU- Engineering & business

Miss St- Agriculture

Vandy- Everything especially engineering

Would does Ole Miss offer?

The academic standards there a so shitty.

I'd say their specialty is "gentlemanly leisure"

Does anyone think that the lack of academic strengths at Ole Miss hurt them in recruiting?

UF - great medical school

UGA - Architecture and Engineering I believe.

What about Auburn? Would they be in the same category as Ole Miss?

I'd actually be interested in seeing what SEC school leads in which fields.


the only one after just guessing, but pretty damn sure about would be LSU for Pet Engineering. After that I'm at a loss

They don't have an engineering program. It's at Tech.

They're big in business and journalism, though Mizzou may have taken the helm on the latter now that they're in.

ETA: Auburn is Engineering and Ag.

LSU has a decent business program. Their internal audit program is probably the best in the world.

LINK

I found this and its just people giving their opinion but some douche put together his ranking.

I thought this would be interesting. Here is mine
Overall Academic Quality
1. Vanderbilt
2. UF
3. UGA
4. Alabama
5. South Carolina
6. Kentucky
7. Auburn
8. Tennessee
9. LSU
10. Ole Miss
11. Arkansas
12. Miss. State

Not sure if graduation rates means anything, but SC's football team graduates one of, if not the least amount of players while LSU graduates the second most yet this guy has LSU at 9.

LSU's Landscape Architecture school is one of the best in the country. But I doubt that's a big sell for athletes as its almost impossible to handle the design studio workload and participate in athletics. I tried to do both and had to stop taking Design and Construction classes til I finished my athletic eligibility. Hence it took me 8 years to graduate.

You're right.

Auburn has a good engineering program for sure. One guy i know went there now works at Boeing. Which is ironic because in high school i took him for kind of a moron.
