Maguire Associates assisted a highly-selective university in the Midwest, which practiced
traditional need-based awarding, in developing a plan for limited merit-within-need awards.
The university's primary goal was to enroll students of the highest academic quality. The results:
An increase of 90% in enrollment among the highest quality students at the university.
An additional $700,000 in net revenue from students of the
highest academic quality.
An increase of 30 points in the mean
SAT score for the entire first-year class.
EMFASYS™ can be applied to specific goals within specific groups,
with dramatic impact on the entire enrolling class.
