When you are going to enter a particular university you will probably try to find out as more information about it as you can. So while most of the students are googling basic facts about various colleges like programs they offer or tuition fees, quite often they forget about such important information as graduation rates. You might consider graduation rates completely irrelevant while choosing a perfect college yourself. However, high graduation rate is a guarantee that you are not going to be dropped out during your first year.
