Is BAC a Good School?

There is no one way to define a "good" college or university. Admissions difficulty and admitted student statistics can give you a sense of how competitive a university 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 at BAC

Compare this to the average six-year graduation rate for colleges and universities in the U.S., which is around 61% for public schools and 67% for private.

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 BAC sound? Remember, the best school for one person may be a terrible fit for someone else! So ask yourself: Is BAC a good school for you?
