At NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering, the Enrollment Management team collaborates closely with faculty on virtual reality (VR) apps that are sent to admitted students along with branded Google Cardboard. As a result of the school’s VR admissions efforts, overall applications have increased—and more women than ever are attracted to the program. Between 2017 and 2018, Tandon also saw a 14% jump in women’s applications and women made up 49% of admitted students.
