Solution Provides Answers to Why Admitted Applicants are Choosing Competitor Schools
Conway, NH – Rapid Insight Inc., a leading provider of easy to use predictive analytics and data blending software, today announced the release of a QuickStart for Competitive Enrollment Analytics. This is the latest in a series of QuickStart solutions aimed at streamlining the process for colleges and universities to use their information for data-driven decision making.
Each year, colleges and universities lose a large percentage of their applicants to competitor schools. Whereas many schools have been analyzing the patterns and trends of students who enroll with them, few have been analyzing the patterns and trends of the applicants who are choosing to enroll elsewhere. This QuickStart solution blends a school’s historical applicant data with data from the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) and produces a series of analyses on the admitted applicants that are choosing competitor schools. Some examples of the types of questions an institution can answer with this QuickStart:
- Who are an institution’s top competitor schools?
- How many admitted applicants are being lost to each competitor?
- How many applicants are choosing out of state schools vs. in-state?
- Which schools are applicants being lost to within each program or major?
- Are applicants being lost to other four year schools, or to two year schools?
- What is the profile of applicants by school chosen (avg. SAT/ACT, High School GPA, etc…)?
- What is the probability for each current applicant that they will choose a competitor?
“With the higher ed landscape becoming more competitive, it is vital to be able to use data as a strategic asset. This QuickStart enables schools to analyze their competitive environment so that they can quickly react and make any changes needed to remain competitive,” noted Paul Kirsch, Marketing Manager for Rapid Insight.
