The Colleges Where Students Most Want To Go In 2015
This post was written by our friends at forbes.com
This spring, Harvard announced that it had admitted just 1,990 students from its record-high applicant pool of 37,509. That means only 5.3% of those who applied got in, including the 977 students given seats in the early action pool. Together with the 4,292 applicants who were deferred from that group only a minuscule 2.8% got in through regular admission. Those are the lowest numbers ever for the 379-year-old Ivy League institution. Nevertheless, a new survey from a two-year-old test prep startup called LTG Exam, creator of recently-launched Prep4SAT, shows that Harvard is the No. 1 choice among high school seniors. Two thousand seven hundred aspiring college students who use Prep4SAT ranked the schools where they most want to go.
