LST Score Reports (seeking input for new version)

Postby jenesaislaw » Wed Aug 21, 2013 2:16 pm

We are adding the ability to personalize your experience on the LST Score Reports (http://www.lstscorereports.com for the uninitiated). What features would you like to see added?

Some possibilities:

(1) Change what's in the Employment Score / Under-Employment Score.
(2) Combine state data into regional reports.
(3) Apply financial aid awards and personal/family contributions to calculating total cost of attendance.
(4) Apply personal estimates to the school's estimate of cost of attendance.
(5) Share school options publicly for others to read, with cost of attendance estimates and employment outcomes.
(6) Compare schools side-by-side.
(7) Data trends over time, by school

I see that you can click on a state and get the list of schools that are best employed in that state and you get their % of employment score. What I would like to see is to see this Nationwide and not just for one state. I dont think that there is a way to do this currently.

It's mostly the same data that we already have up. We'll be adding (a) scholarship retention data; (b) class of 2012 salary information for the schools that publish it or submit it to us; (c) other class of 2012 employment data from schools that's not required by the ABA (job offer timing, job source, search status of employed graduates, state employment breakdowns); (d) updated admissions data.

My hope is to release it on September 19th. I am spending much of my time these days programming. We will need help with data input if anybody wants to volunteer!

Nah, don't feel stupid. We need to make clearer all that we offer. What I REALLY want is a video tutorial for the site. I do not have those capabilities.
