Is community college a better alternative than going straight into JMU?
It's often difficult for graduating high school seniors to determine whether the benefits of
attending community college outweighs the four year college experience. The goal
of our application, DatApp, is to help alleviate the stress of choosing a school while providing
the necessary data to help solve this problem. This issue is broken down into four separate
sections. The first section shows the transfer acceptance rates of students attending a user-selected
community college. The second section shows a breakdown of the average earnings of a JMU
graduate with a user-selected major and the overall debt of a student that attended JMU for all four
years versus attending a user-selected community college for two years. The third section shows the
JMU graduation rates of students that transferred from a user-selected community college. Finally,
the last section shows a comparison between the average GPA of students in a JMU Discipline versus
the distribution of letter grades of students from a user selected JMU college.
