Hello Im A Georgia Resident And My Top Two Choices Has Came Down To University Of Georgia And Clark Atlanta University. But My Only Problem With Clark Is That Why Are The Retention Rates So Low. Is That Something I Need To Worry About?? What Do You Guys Think?
It's hard to say. This topic came up in one of the blog posts also. Many factors influence 4yr retention rates, not all of which reflect on the university.1. Quality of campus life2. Difficulty of the academic curriculum - a high quality, challenging program can actually lower retention rates3. Availability of financial aid4. Availability of remedial education and tutoringKeep in mind that at UGA retention rates are for the entire student body, and retention for minority students can be much different from the student population as a whole.
