    • 14. Let’s Do Some Math
    • 15. What is the value of a Student?• Average Years = 3• Cost Per Year = $20,000• Average Yearly Discount = $10,000• Student Value = 3 * ($20,000 - $10,000)• So a Student is worth $30,000!
    • 16. What is the value of an Applicant?• Student Value = $30,000• Conversion Rate in Applicant = 20%• App Value = $30,000 * .2• So an Applicant is worth $6,000!
    • 17. Value Of Campus Tour?
    • 18. What is a Campus Visit Worth?• Application Value = $6,000• Conversion Rate of Visits to Applicant = 20%• Value of Visit = $6,000 * .2• So Each Student Visit is Worth $1,200!
    • 19. What is a Virtual Tour Visit Worth?• Visit Value = $1,200• Conversion of Map to Visit = 5%• Value of a Map View = $1,200 * .05• So Each Map View is Worth $60!
