Ivy League Acceptance Rates Decrease

By now, students have either heard from colleges or are anxiously awaiting a decision over the next few days. However, the statistics are already being released. Seven of the eight Ivy League schools have lower acceptance rates this year. Interestingly, decreased acceptance rates occurred whether or not there was an increase in the number of applications. Fortunately, as applicants should remember, there are over 2,000 schools across the United States where students can receive a quality education, and not be faced with intimidating acceptance rates.
