Report: Social Listening for Admissions Insights—August 2021


Our recruitment-focused social listening research used admissions audience segmentation as a guide. Between February to April 2021 we found unifying themes and understanding as individuals shared their experiences, woes, and excitement while revealing their mindsets for critical admissions choices at every stage of the funnel.

Their conversations go beyond the decisions of early May and relate to visits, applications, academics, financial confusion, and all the small stops in between, offering insights to fine-tune your approach.
