Weightlist Episode 15 – Back in the Enrollment Lab with Eric Maguire

Do you know how many students would apply to your institution if you did NOT recruit them? Does the “Fast App” approach work? By popular request, Brad and Thom welcome Eric Maguire, Vice President & Dean of Admission & Financial Aid at Franklin and Marshall College, back to The Weightlist to report results from enrollment experiments he and his team ran this past admissions cycle. In one of the most fascinating discussions yet on the podcast we explore return on investment, recruitment truth over mythology, why the feedback from failure is a gift, and of course, cold beer.
