Use R to Model Enrollment Yield

This repo contains the code to replicate the Scannel and Kurz Post on why huge swings in app growth might not always be good for Enrollment Managers. One important note. I have no affiliation with S&K. I simply wanted to build upon a common idea and produce code so others can run and build upon this very important concept in Enrollment Management. About I have been collecting and analyzing data along the lines of the S&K and post for a while now, but they beat me to the punch and did a great job highlighting an important point.
