Keeping Vigil on 2018-19 Merit Scholarship Deadlines

Posted in Your College List, Class of 2023, Affordability

moneyIf you're in the hunt for merit scholarships, be sure to stay on top of explicit deadlines a school on your list might have.

In some cases, like Boston University and the University of Richmond, it's a hard deadline that you have to meet in order for you to be considered at all.  In others, like Indiana University and many other public institutions, it's a "priority" deadline that maximizes your chances of merit aid before the money runs out.  Either way, merit aid continues to be an excellent way for good students to defray the cost of an education.  

We've compiled a list of selected schools in our coverage universe with explicit deadlines, along with some stats to help you gauge the size and breadth of the institution's merit offerings.  We've also included links to each school's scholarship page for easy access to the details.

Most of these schools automatically consider you for merit scholarships without the need for an additional application.

Notable Admission Rate Changes for the Class of 2022

Posted in Class of 2023, Class of 2022

surprised-student

Given how sophisticated colleges have become in recruiting applicants, it's dangerous to rely on old admissions data.  

We've taken a look at our coverage universe and identified schools with notable admission rate differences between the Class of 2022 and the Class of 2021. In addition to providing the admission rates, we've included some commentary to explain why as well as a link back to the source article.

Unfortunately, this year's notable changes are all about falling admission rates.  Each of the schools listed have reported year over year application growth, and many cases this is coupled with a decline in admitted students.  While some institutions admitted fewer students to compensate for overenrollment last year, we suspect others have done so as a result of higher proportions of applicants being admitted through early decision/early action programs. 

Depending on how you categorize schools, the admission rate change may be enough to turn a likely into a target or target into a reach.  Regardless, take a moment to review the list—the last thing anyone needs at this point is a surprise!

College Kickstart subscribers: Class of 2022 admission rates have already been incorporated into the latest release of College Kickstart.

Colleges Where Interviews are Required or Strongly Recommended (Class of 2023)

Posted in Your College List, Class of 2023

interviewWith the fall 2018-19 application cycle now in full swing, it's important to keep an eye on interview requirements for the schools on your list—especially if they're looking for evidence of demonstrated interest.  

To make this easier for you, we've compiled a list of popular schools where interviews are required or strongly recommended, along with the degree to which the institution considers demonstrated interest as part of the evaluation.  

In cases like Hillsdale College where interviews are highly recommended and demonstrated interest is very important, it's a good bet than an interview is worth your time.  On the flip side, if interviews are optional and demonstrated interest isn't considered, booking an interview is less critical.  The devil is in the details, so to help you figure out your strategy we've also included a link to each listed school's interview policy.  Do keep in mind that interview requirements may often vary by major.
