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!

University of California Fall 2018 Admission Trends

Posted in Your College List, Class of 2023, Class of 2022, Perspectives

ucHot off the press!  We've had a chance to review the Fall 2018 admissions data released recently by the University of California and thought it would be helpful to summarize it and share our key findings.  

Overall freshman admission rates are up for non-residents and down for residents as the University of California continues to settle on a new normal that accommodates a larger mix of out of state and international students.   If you're an out of state or international student, pay close attention...there continues to be a window of opportunity to take advantage of favorable odds at several UC campuses.

Class of 2022 Waitlist Notification Dates and Stats

Posted in Class of 2022, Waitlist

UPDATE #2 (6/28)

waitlist2018For those of you that have been waitlisted at one of your top choices, here's a list of 2017 waitlist statistics for several popular private and public schools, along with notification dates and latest status where available.  

Our sample of waitlist statistics from 132 private and public institutions paints the following picture:

  • On average, 13 percent of students accepting a place on a waitlist were admitted
  • 63 percent of the schools admitted 10 percent or less of the students accepting a place on the wait list last year
  • 51 percent of the schools admitted 5 percent or less
  • 16 percent admitted no one

There are several factors driving the low rates, including the size of the waitlist (often very large), and how well a school anticipates its admissions yield.
