Increase applicant conversions

Attracting students is expensive and time consuming, but it’s only the first step. The Acceptance Declined Study (ADS) helps you understand why applicants aren’t accepting your offer so you can make changes to your strategy.

 
 

Know what matters

ADS provides a ranked index of factors to help you understand what impacts your applicants, so you can focus attention on what really matters.
