  2. Earnings Boost

    The earnings boost method seems an inaccurate measure. Students who work in the region of our college after graduation make much less than students in other areas. (Obviously, not all of them remain in the region, but a good number of them do. This would make our overall college ranking much lower than it should be.)

  3. Where do undergrads go after graduation?

    Hi!

    I am interested in where your undergraduate students go after college. What percentage stay local to Durham, move to neighboring cities within NC or move out of the state? Do you have this information?

    I have operate a social network to help graduating students move off campus and adjust to life outside of academia. And its likely more beneficial to those who are moving further away from campus (i.e. to a new city). It would help to know what percentage leave to a new city.

    Thanks so much! This information will really help me validate if my startup would…

  5. Missing information from IPEDS

    Hello,

    My name is Carly Hendrickson, and I work for Principia College, Admissions. I'm one of a few individuals at our institution who completes survey information eventually published by companies such as yours. I noticed that our college profile does not include information in the "Value for Your Money" section as well as the overall "value" ranking.

    This is concerning to us because our school has been noted in other national rankings as a top-value school. It also concerns us because our college completes the IPEDS survey every year, which is where we believe this information should have been found…

  6. Provide more statistics than just the average student debt

    Knowing the AVERAGE (mean) student debt for graduates of a college is simply not enough. Having basic information about the distribution of the debt -- range and standard deviation -- would make these data actually useful for truly understanding the situation faced by young people entering various professions. I am trying to demonstrate such circumstances for teachers whose salary levels are highly politicized now. Knowing teachers expenses, specifically their debt service, would go a long way toward truly understanding their need for increased salary.

  8. Room & Board at Bob Jones University

    The BJU website does not completely explain Room & Board. I understand the "Room" part. What exactly is the "Board" part. Does the Room & Board cost allow the student to have free food? Is there an allowance/limit on free food? The "Board" side of Room & Board needs to be explained clearly. It's currently vague.

  10. messed up stats

    You messed up on your stats for college retention rates. You have 0.13% when you actually meant 13%

    As one example for John Jay College in nyc.

  12. INCORRECT UNIVERSITY NAME - Western State College NOW Western State Colorado University

    Our university name is incorrect. Three years ago, our name was changed from "Western State College of Colorado" to Western State Colorado University.

    Could you please update the name in your system to support our rebranding and alleviate confusion!

  14. Maryville Univ. shouldn't be allowed to hire spouses.

    Maryvulle should uphold strict constraints on faculty hiring and not commit nepotism. However, if a spouse is hired, the trailing candidate should be positioned in a different department.

  15. Louisiana Tech - incorrect information

    I taught at La. Tech for approx 30 years. and disagree that 100% of instructors are faculty rather than lecturers, particularly in the college of engineering. I would encourage you to check on this number. Most recent hires were, I believe, hired as lecturers

  16. You're missing NC State.

    You forgot NC State University. It's typically ranked between 20-40 depending on the methodology. You have UNC-C and NC A&T but for some reason, the largest and best engineering program in the state was forgotten.

  17. Questions on USA Today College Rankings

    Hi,

    I have a few questions about the USA Today College Rankings.

    1) Annual Net Price In-State- How is this calculated? Where do you get the information?
    2) Loan Default Rate- What are the parameters for the rankings? What are the cut offs for Low, Average and High?
    3) Full-time Teachers- How and where do you get this information?
    4) For retention rate you just have High, Average or Low. What are the parameters for these categories?
    5) On-Time Graduation Rate- What cohort is this for? It's a four year grad rate, correct?

    Thank you for the help!

  18. How do we compare to last years data?

    How can we compare this years data with last years data? or at least the overall ranking?
    Specifically I am trying to find what the University of Arizona was ranked last year to compare to this year.

    Thanks

  19. Some of your data is absurdly incorrect.

    Some of your data is nonsensically incorrect.

    You give the mean SAT scores of Southern University of New Orleans as 1,065. Absurd. No one who knows anything about SU would claim such a thing. Combined score of 500 is more likely.
