Do graduate schools need their own self-Yelp system?

Would a Yelp-like system for reviewing higher ed degree programs be more helpful to students than U.S. News & World Report rankings?

Reported by The Chronicle of Higher Education, ranking graduate schools by more student-centric measures could be much more helpful to the discerning prospective student. How was the advising? The career counseling? The job preparation? Your career outcomes?

The takeaway? What if instead of waiting for Silicon Valley VCs to monetize these degree program reviews, your institution started to provide your own self-Yelp ratings and provide prospective students with a helpful counterpoint to existing research-based rankings?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
