NACAC Releases Analysis of Public Comments on Commercial Recruitment Agent Issue

The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) has released an interesting new report which analyzes public comments on its statement on use of Commission-based commercial recruitment agents, which was covered in an earlier post.  A total of 281 public comments were submitted, of which 21 percent came from high school counselors and 49.8 percent came from postsecondary admissions counselors, both domestic and internationa.  Significantly, 98.1 percent of the high school counselors supported the NACAC board proposal, compared with only 44% of the postsecondary counselors.
The NACAC report also included the accompanying graphic, from another survey.  It shows clearly that over half of undergraduate institutions in the U.S. do not use commercial recruitment agents, compared with about 20 percent that make some use of them.
