Our admissions drives a lot as far as what operationally it looks like for next year and financially it looks like for next year too, so looking at the amount of inquiries that are coming in, all the amount of applications that are coming in, and kinda using past data to say okay, if we get this number of inquiries, usually we get this number of applications. So if inquiries are spiking right now or being really high right now we can expect a lot of applications to come through and that would then drive how many students do we want to admit etc.
And saying that too because inquiries are spiking not all of those families are going to be full pay families for instance, right, so what’s the impact of financial aid, and financial aid module is one thing that we have in there too, so how does that outlook go, because tuition drives financial aid and all of those things intertwine. So looking at the data, past years versus this year and then kinda looking at that financial aid what we did in the past few years to this year as well and families coming through there too.
