Is Cornell College a good school?

There is no one way to define a "good" college or university. Acceptance rate and average GPA are good indicators of how selective an institution is, but they don't say much about the quality of the education or the student experience. There are a few statistics that can give you a good idea of how satisfied students are and how well a school supports its students.

Retention, graduation, and job placement statistics all give valuable information about the quality of the student experience, before and after graduation.

Job outcomes and student debt

Job placement and student debt statistics for recent graduates can give you a sense of the return on investment a school offers. In 2020, students graduated with an average of $39,924 in student loans for each student with debt. For context, compare this number with the average national debt, which is around $36,000 per borrower.
