If They Choose Another School You Should

by Jeremy Tiers, Director of Admissions Services        Sometimes even your best isn’t going to be enough to convince an admitted student that your school is the “best fit” for them. The reasons will vary. Some will be legitimate, and some will make absolutely no sense whatsoever. Anytime you lose a student it’s important to self-evaluate and figure out the why behind that student’s decision...especially if it’s someone that you had penciled in as a “yes." That’s what I’m going to help you with today. In some cases the why will be something that’s out of your control. But more often than you...

When Your Prospects Say, “I Knew It!”

We all do that. News comes along that either confirms our worst fears, or validates our deeply held beliefs.

Ask Your Undecided Students These Questions

by Jeremy Tiers, Director of Admissions Services        Thanks for checking out this week’s newsletter. I’m sending good vibes your way as you finish putting together your school’s next class of new students. Last week I received a bunch of emails from admissions counselors looking for advice on how they could move their undecided students to the “yes column,” or at least one step closer towards making those deposits. In three different emails I was given the scenario of a student being “90-95% sure” or “pretty sure” that they were coming, but the student then told the admissions counselor in the same conversation...
