Is NE a Good School?

Different people have different ideas about what makes a "good" school. Acceptance rate and average GPA are good indicators of how competitive 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.

Based on this information, how does NE sound? Remember, a school that is perfect for one person may be a terrible fit for someone else! So ask yourself: Is NE a good school for you?
