College Admissions: Spring 2013 Stats

Admission statistics for the Class of 2017 set new records for many of the most selective schools. Seven of the eight Ivy League institutions reported lower acceptance rates. - In keeping with recent tradition, Harvard’s acceptance rate of 5.8% of its 33,531 applicants is the lowest reported the Ivy League. Yale came in second place admitting 6.7% of its record-high 29,610 applicants, followed by Columbia at 6.9%, Princeton at 7.3%, Brown at 9.2%, Dartmouth at 10.05% and University of Pennsylvania at 12.1% of 31,280 applications. Cornell received a record 40,006 applications and accepted 15.2% of them — down from 16.2% last year. - Stanford beat out Harvard with a record-setting low acceptance rate of 5.7% (38,828 applicants) while MIT admitted 8.2% of its nearly 19,000 applicants. The University of Chicago accepted less than 9% of the record 30,369 applications it received.

 

The main issue with these colleges is that they do not provide scholarships. They only provide Need Based Aid. There are other colleges that would have loved to take these kids and would have given them excellent scholarships. The colleges listed do not need to give out scholarships to attract students and why should they with admission rates as low as these...

Say Goodbye To High School & Hello To Life As A College Student!

Guest Post By: Miki Noble

So you've either just graduated, are about to or you’re counting the days until you do. Whichever bucket you may be categorized in, one things for sure… Ch-ch-ch-changes are in store… Life can be segmented up into achievement hurdles and as far as the normal standards go – graduating high school is definitely one of them. That said, there are a few ways that you can educate yourself about the college lifestyle.

I’m not referring to the ordinary topics that are dumped on you; I’m referring to topics that you don’t generally learn about until once you've moved into your dorm room or apartment.

The roommate situation… Whether your dorming it, living in a fraternity or sharing an apartment or a house with a few friends, a large part of your time will be spent with your roommates. Which means choose wisely and get to know them really well. In between classes and studying you will need to find time to buddy up with whomever you happen to be living with. Regardless if you’re an introvert or extrovert you’ll come to rely on this relationship in more ways than one. Food, laundry and extra curricular activities can and should be shared. No doubt your parents will thank you for not over spending on your monthly quota, but you may end up having a few extra dollars to play with. Either way, moving away from home and in with roommates is your first initial phase to stepping out of your comfortable lifestyle with the parents. So prepare yourself… Get comfortable with eating Top Ramen (or just having your food swiped all together by your dorm mates), as you won’t be having too many home cooked meals for your college duration. I’d suggest learning how to do your own laundry before you head out of the homestead as well, but I’m sure after a few loads you’ll quickly know that separating the whites from the colors is important in order to keep your wardrobe from turning into one color. And if you happen to know whether or not you’re going to be using public laundry equipment you may just want to start saving up your quarters now.

Buying Versus Renting Books… This strictly depends on the person and the budget they've been given. A majority of students prefer to buy their own books; there is something more personable about owning your semester reference manuals rather than sharing them. However, it all boils down to preference and where you want to penny pinch. For those of you who don’t mind the “sharing is caring concept” renting a book is super efficient and affordable. The great thing about renting is that you don’t have to worry about where to store your books at the end of the semester and/or how to re-sell them. If you’re a “what’s mine is mine” type of personality, I’d suggest buying a used textbook. They too are more affordable and often come in handy with previous owners notes and/or helpful hints. That being said, as much as a book can have a certain sentimental value to it – your textbooks are not something you need to keep. Considering they’re generally updated each year, the last thing you want to do is lug an old book around from dorm to dorm each year in hopes that it may come in handy as a reference later on. Especially when a majority of the information is searchable via the Internet.

Moving cycles… If you live far away from home or your college is out of state you need to be aware that your moving cycles are going to be constantly changing for the next 4-7 years of your college life. If you choose to live on campus, you will be moving at the end of each college term (Fall – Spring semesters). Even if you aren't living on campus, you may move just as frequently. Which means, on average from the beginning to the end of your college life you’ll have moved at least 5 times. Having a reliable car or source of transportation is going to come in handy. For you out of stater students – there are companies that specialize in providing moving, shipping and storage services for students. DormRoomMovers.com/?src=JDaffiliate Based on the overall moves you will make, you may want to consider the limit of objects you take with you and obtain during each semester.

Have Fun (but be safe)… College isn't always about education. It’s about exploring your surroundings, becoming more attuned to the world around you and discovering who you truly are. Taking that into consideration, you should look into the social groups your campus offers and join one that most intrigues your curiosities. Getting involved in social groups will help build connections and looks great on paper when you begin applying for an internship or a job. Plus, the benefits of being involved in a group will open doorways to extra curricular activities that you may not have otherwise been able to participate in as some clubs are exclusive to members only. Social events and parties are a big part of that and whether it’s your scene or not, be sure to enjoy yourself (so long as your being safe about it).

Build A Group… Studying isn't the most fun activity you can think about doing throughout your college years, but it’s one of the most frequent activities you will be doing. Some people prefer to study alone, but there is something to be said to the phrase ‘two heads are better than one’. Having a study partner or group to rely on for projects, exams, and or just weekly assignments can be rewarding in the fact that you will have an outside opinion and be able to bounce ideas, concepts and answers every time you meet up. Plus, it provides some sort of accountability for you with your classes. Most teachers/professors aren't going to hold your hand through college. The pressure is all on you and your ability to manage your time effectively so you get what you need to get done for each class. The easier this process is, the better for you and your grades will be – so make friends in your classes and build a study group to keep you ahead of the game.

All in all, College is a huge part of bridging the gap between who you are now and where and who you will be in 5+ years. So my suggestion to you is - take it slow but enjoy the ride…

New Essay Prompts for 2013 -2014 Common Application

The 2013-2014 Common Application, scheduled to launch on August 1, 2013, will include new “personal statement” essay prompts. The new admission application prompts were created to enable applicants to tell their unique stories as part of a holistic selection process. 

The essay demonstrates your ability to write clearly and concisely on a selected topic and helps you distinguish yourself in your own voice.

The questions no longer offer a "topic of choice" prompt however the first prompt is mostly open. The length of an acceptable essay has increased from 500 to up to 650 words. The Common App will not accept a response shorter than 250 words.

Students are instructed to write clearly on a selected topic that “helps you distinguish yourself in your own voice” and enables “readers of your application to know you apart from courses, grades, and test scores”.

The following prompts will appear on the 2013 -1014 Common Application:

  • Some students have a background or story that is so central to their identity that they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.
  • Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure. How did it affect you, and what lessons did you learn?
  • Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea. What prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again?
  • Describe a place or environment where you are perfectly content. What do you do or experience there, and why is it meaningful to you?
  • Discuss an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that marked your transition from childhood to adulthood within your culture, community, or family.

 The Common Application (informally known as the Common App) is an undergraduate college admission application that applicants may use to apply to any of 488 member colleges and universities in the United States. Students fill out one application and send it electronically to as many of the member colleges as required.

Senioritis, Fatal to Scholarships

Senioritis. Is it real?

So what, I’ve got senioritis. I have already been admitted, what can they do?

Colleges can do a lot of grievous tear producing things to students who have senioritis.

Your applications have been sent, your first semester is over, and your financial aid forms have been submitted. You may be wondering what’s really left to do in high school. Whether you are a senior who is counting the days until graduation, or you are one who is becoming nostalgic about leaving friends and family, you are undoubtedly aware that things are about to change. The future is a little unclear, so it’s no wonder you may be feeling a bit alienated from the real world, wondering why you still have to complete assignments and abide by your school and family rules.

It’s a known fact that second semester seniors often feel lethargic and a bit adrift, so you are not alone if you’re finding yourself daydreaming instead of studying. You may also be feeling a bit ambivalent about your relationship with family and friends, which is a sign that you are preparing for next step in your life that will take place this fall.

All these feelings are normal; however, they shouldn't be used as an excuse for not completing work. Try your best to concentrate and to find joy in your final months of high school. The college you choose to go to will ask for a copy of your final transcript and they do have the right to reverse their decision if your grades drop.

Many students have been shocked to find out that a college rescinded on the decision to admit them. That is the worst case scenario. The second worst case is revoking all your scholarships.

So in plain simple language, high school seniors who let their grades drop can lose their admission spot (meaning you won’t be going to that college) or lose any scholarship the college offered (meaning you can go but now it will cost more.)
The best way to demonstrate that you are ready for the independence of college is to make the most of the last months of your high school career. Enjoy high school while you can!

And keep your grades up!

Full Ride Scholarship, Full Tuition Scholarship &Partial Tuition Scholarship

There are a couple terms you should be familiar with; Full Ride Scholarship, Full Tuition Scholarship and Partial Tuition Scholarship. These titles have varied meanings at different colleges. So when a recruiter or counselor or another parent throws out these titles, know what they are referencing.

To me, Full Ride is the coveted scholarship and means that the scholarship covers everything expect for some pizza and spending money and maybe you will have to come up with money to cover an airline ticket out to the college. Other than that, everything else is covered.

Full Tuition, to me means that it covers 100% of tuition which at one of the in state colleges is around $10,000 per year. Books, Fees, Meal Plan, Room and Board are usually not included and must be paid by you or rolled into a loan. This could be as much as $15,000 to $20,000 that is not covered in the Full Tuition Scholarship.

Some Recruiters will throw around Full Ride when they really mean Full Tuition.

Partial Tuition Scholarship is exactly that, it covers a percentage of tuition. So in the case of one of the in state colleges, a 25% tuition scholarship could be around $2,500 per year. A 40% Tuition Scholarship at a Private college where the Tuition fees are $42,000 would equal about $17,000 in scholarships.

Don’t throw out a college based solely on the sticker price until you have run all the numbers because some colleges have been known to be very generous and it could be less expensive in the long run.

Know before you go.
