This paper describes using econometric modeling techniques to analyze the enrollment behavior of admitted students at four-year colleges and universities. It is based on the author's work over the last four years with approximately two dozen institutions seeking to understand more about the behavior of their admitted students-especially those requesting financial aid. This approach to modeling enrollment behavior has been discussed frequently in the literature and has been adopted or attempted at a number of institutions. Here, schools' experiences with such an approach are examined. We look at a wide spectrum of institutions differing by size, selectivity, and program focus.
