I’m preparing to apply for two master’s programs. For one of the programs, I asked an advisor how many people graduate each year.
I asked because of the 350 people who apply each year about 120 are admitted. (It’s an online master’s.) This is a very high number to me, especially when compared to the other program I’m considering. So it makes me curious how many people actually graduate, which also can give me insight into competition in the workforce.
She told me they don’t keep records of graduate numbers because it fluctuates from year to year.
This sounds extremely fishy to me. Is this a common practice for master’s programs?
