The Admitted Student Questionnaire, sponsored by The College Board, is sent to all students who have been admitted to Earlham. The questionnaire is designed to find out what students really think of our programs, recruitment literature, financial aid packages, competition, and more. Students are asked to rate colleges on image (highly respected, expensive, diverse, etc.) and on characteristics (academic reputation, cost of attendance, quality of academic facilities, etc.). The College Board provides a detailed report of their findings.
Thirty-one percent of the students who were admitted for Fall 2012 completed the survey. Of those who responded, 60% enrolled at Earlham.
The detailed report of the Admitted Student Questionnaire can be found in hard copy in the Office of Institutional Research. To view some of the highlights from the ASQ report, click on the following links:
The Admitted Student Questions also provides us with competitor analysis for Knox, Grinnell, Wooster, Beloit and Oberlin. It begins with an overview of the comparison groups comparing Earlham and these schools on academic, social, and setting factors.
