I'd imagine that if Alabama had a similar program, then the GPAs would be a little higher too.

As far as US News goes, I always thought Alabama was ranked higher than 83rd. UF is in the low 50s--definitely not the highest-ranked state school, but I believe it's the highest-ranked in the SEC.
This typically true for me to as far as the GPA trend. I think you've IDed the reason for it too. But the one I saw this year seemed really low, and it wasn't as if she had amazing test scores to compensate. It was strange. I hope her rush went okay.
