7. The University of Notre Dame in South Bend is probably the preeminent Catholic university in the nation. Countless Catholics who have never been to Indiana consider the Fighting Irish almost a secondary alma mater (or even a primary, depending on whom you ask). And yet its actual 12-month enrollment of 12,721 only ranks it #619 in the country. According to NCED, name a Catholic college or university whose twelve-month, unduplicated enrollment ranked among the top 1000 of all colleges and universities, public and private, in 2013-14.
And here's where I learn when I need to either write better questions, or withhold questions entirely. I found it rather difficult to peg the question down to be extensive without creating unnecessary negbait (I figured if I included the first school not on the list, it would make some options become more palatable than they actually were, and result in additional wrong answers). But also, most other ways I could have asked the question would have been too subjective. The list I used, while from the government, is also rather obscure compared to enrollment numbers individual schools report, and in some cases there's a large discrepancy. I appreciate you all working through my growing pains. In the future, I'll come up with a better question, even if that means that the work I did cross-checking school data and searching for schools in an Excel database is for naught.
Wrong answers – 12 points
#1019, 7268 -- this is the one I feel bad about as it was the second-largest enrollment not to qualify
#1041, 7053; not a Catholic university
