Admission to top U.S. colleges and universities has never been more difficult.
Harvard broke all records in 2008, accepting just 7.1 percent of applicants, while Yale accepted 8.3 percent, Columbia 10 percent, and Princeton 9.3 percent. Brown and Dartmouth accepted 13 percent and 13.2 percent, respectively. Williams, Bowdoin, Middlebury air jordan 4 green glow for sale , and Amherst Colleges accepted 16.3 percent, 18.4 percent, 18.3 percent, and 14.2 respectively. Swarthmore College granted admission to a record-low 15 percent, while the University of Pennsylvania admitted 16.4 percent. Boston College admitted a record-low 26 percent of applicants, and Duke reported record selectivity admitting 19 percent. The overall Ivy acceptance rate this past year was 12% — again, an all time low. For students applying from India the odds are even lower.
With Harvard and Princeton dropping early decisionaction and Harvard, Dartmouth air jordan 4 fire red uk , Swarthmore and Tufts announcing expansions of financial aid in recent months, the pool of applicants for the Ivy League and other top schools is overwhelmed with qualified students and as a consequence, this year was the lowest ever in terms of acceptances. We don’t see this trend changing any time soon with a population bubble increasing the number of teenagers and more and more highly credentialed students applying. This year there are 3.23 million graduating U.S. high school seniors, and 60-65% of them now apply to colleges. The swelling population of 18-year-olds will peak in 2009, when the largest group of high school seniors in the nation’s history, 3.2 million, are to graduate. The early application information is already in and applications are up by 40% at some top schools.
All is not lost, however. Qualified students from India are being sought out by top Ivy League colleges and universities. Yale recently announced that it is intensifying efforts to recruit Indian students and create more faculty and student exchanges jordan 4 oreo for sale , research partnerships and leadership education.
