College Admissions process?

I took a job as director of admissions for a post-high school internship. Prospective interns have to go through an application process to attend. What is concerning is that last year we had approx. 1500 applications started but only 448 made it. We denied approx. 50. The rest either dropped out or never finished their application. This doesn't seem very efficient to me but I'm not sure if I'm even in line with a traditional college. So, if you have ever worked in an Admissions Office for a college: 1. What percentage of those who start an app actually make it? 2. During training what should I teach first? Product knowledge or phone/customer service skills? Thanks for the help!
