Focus Your Resources, Maximize Your Impact
Focus your search name purchases, digital ads, direct mail campaigns, and counselor travel and outreach on the prospective students you are most likely to influence toward application. Capture’s APPLY not only uses historic data and what we know about the prospective student, but also their actual demonstrated interest in your institution by incorporating ENGAGE’s behavioral data in a way that no other model can. Students in the top decile of the APPLY prediction model apply at 13 times the rate of lower-predicted students.

In the summer of 2018, Thomas Jefferson University was preparing for their second recruitment cycle after their successful merger with Philadelphia University. The admissions team was looking to keep the momentum going.
