The New York Times reported in an article yesterday that the numbers of applications to Harvard, Princeton, Dartmouth, Cornell, and many other colleges are way up this year. Part of this increase is due to demographics, part of it is due to the ease of electronic submissions, and part of it is due to the increased demand for a quality education.
Here is a short chart of the increases:
University of Chicago: 18%
Amherst College 17%
University of Virginia 4%
With the competition so stiff, can you afford not to have the help you need to find and apply to the college of your dreams?
