When faced with choosing between two institutions, how does a student make the decision about which college or university to attend? It’s a combination of factors, according to a new report from Eduventures, the research arm of NRCCUA. Understanding those factors, according to the report, can help schools better prepare for changes in levels of student interest and influence the outcomes.

Researcher Kim Reid, an Eduventures principal analyst and author of the report, used data on nearly 76,000 students drawn from the company’s “2018 Survey of Admitted Students.” Each student had to make an enrollment choice between at least two schools and provided information and ratings about their ultimate enrollment choice and the next one in line. That analysis allowed Reid to produce an institution-level dataset with 151,676 sets of ratings for 1,383 four-year public and private nonprofit schools. (For-profits were left out of the analysis.)
