May 1, 2024, at 8:32am EST

On May 1st, known as decision day for college-bound students, protests at universities like Columbia have complicated the decision-making process for many. Christopher Rim, CEO of Command Education, notes that students are uncertain about attending universities due to ongoing protests and safety concerns. Some students who were accepted to Columbia have opted out, preferring a gap year instead. The protests have raised questions about the value of a degree from affected universities. Rim also mentions that some schools extended their decision deadlines due to delays in financial aid processing. The impact of these protests extends beyond individual decisions, potentially affecting the reputation and value of affected universities.
