You Have to Ask Them Better Questions

By Jeremy Tiers, Director of Admissions Services    Last week I talked about paying close attention to the way that you start your sentences when you talk to prospective students. The words that you choose to use will either elicit a response, or you’ll get a whole lot of nothing. The same thing goes every time you ask questions. Depending on the words you use, you’re either going to get the “right” answer (Aka the answer the student thinks they should give you), no answer at all, or an insightful answer with context and usable information.

Avoid Saying This in Your Emails, Calls and Texts

By Jeremy Tiers, Director of Admissions Services    Words matter. Words compel us to do things, and they also bore us to the point where we stop paying attention or listening. This is especially true for every prospective student that you’re trying to enroll right now…traditional undergrad or non-traditional. Considering how hard it is to get and keep the attention of anybody these days, it’s important to know which words and phrases to avoid. Over the past few years I’ve identified three words that a lot of admissions counselors and student callers use that provide little to no benefit for them. They use these words...
