The Economy Affects College Enrollments and Admissions Strategies


An excellent article from the Baltimore Sun analyzes the way in which colleges are reacting to the economic downturn.  Here are some of the trends.

  • More private colleges are turning to their waiting lists to fill their classes.
  • More families are making deposits accepting admission to more then one institution, then bargaining hard for financial aid, pitting one school against the other.
  • More students are questioning the value of a private education in a time of economic uncertainty.
  • Enrollments at community colleges seem to be increasing.
