Is LIM a good school?

Different people have different ideas about what makes a "good" school. Admissions difficulty and admitted student statistics can give you a sense of how selective a college is, but they don't tell you how happy or successful students are.

Retention, graduation rates, and job placement statistics can help you understand how satisfied students are with their school experience, and how effectively an institution prepares students for careers.

Retention and graduation rates

About 70 percent of students who start at LIM return for their second year of college. Out of the 278 students who started at LIM as first-time freshman, 110 graduate within four years.

Around 53 percent of students who started at LIM earn their Bachelor's degrees within six years. The average six-year graduation rate for U.S. colleges and universities is 61 percent for public schools, and 67 percent for private, non-profit schools.

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. Within six months of graduating, 94 percent of graduates receive at least one full-time job offer.

In 2020, students graduated with an average of $37,086 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.

Based on this information, how does LIM sound? Remember, a school that is perfect for one person may not be the right school for another! So the real question to ask yourself: is LIM a good school for YOU?
