Although national data shows that, overall, college applications and enrollment were down this year, that’s not the whole picture. Applications were up – significantly – at highly selective schools. And that trend is likely to continue into the 2021-2022 application cycle, given that many of these same colleges have extended their test-optional policies in light of the continuing pandemic.
Below, we’ve compiled a list of application increases as reported by some of the top colleges in the U.S., and we will continue to update it as new information is announced.
