Ever since I wrote about how the online application could be hurting your ability to innovate, I’ve had many discussions with institutions discussing ways they've increased their candidate pool and engagement throughout the applicant journey – and how this has a direct impact on their admissions results.
Now that the fall HEUG regional season is winding down, I thought I’d put together some observations from the two most recent events in which we participated.
Thank you for all of you who attended this week's webinar: Optimizing your Admissions
SCHRUG 2019 is a wrap. It was great meeting with old friends and new at the Davidson-Gundy Alumni center. We also unveiled an early version of our Admissions product.
It’s a wrap. We just finished our first event – the Higher Education User Group annual Alliance conference. As a new company, we had modest expectations in terms of exposure and feedback – and we were blown away by how far we exceeded them.
This morning, the justice department charged more than 30 people for fraudulently helping their kids get into a who’s who of higher education institutions.
It’s not an easy question to answer. There are many factors involved in making sound admissions decisions. It’s crucially important to get it right because it affects every aspect of the institution.
