NOTES: “Valid N” refers to the number of schools for which information
on a particular characteristic was available. When a tuition range was provided,
the mid-point of the range was used. The weighted mean was generated by associating
each student with the characteristics of the school he/she was attending, and then
computing the average of these student-level characteristics.
