    Hello everyone!

    The New York Times has a great article that explains how big data is being used on campuses to help predict student graduation probabilities, identify students at risk of dropping out and help students better select what courses they should take. Big data appears to be here to stay and its ramifications on the educational experience could be far reaching in the not-so-distant future. Our advice would be to investigate how your prospective schools plan to use it and factor that into your final school selection decision.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Hello everyone!

    The Star Tribune ran an article over the weekend that profiled the results of a federally funded big data program at Georgia State University. I don’t want to copy and paste the article here, but you can click the link and you’ll read how one expert called the results, “pretty much unprecedented, it’s fantastic.”

    Best of luck with your applications!
