Colleges across the U.S. released their admissions statistics for the college Class of 2027. As always, significantly more students applied than were accepted. And this year, it was harder than ever to get in.
Below is a chart outlining this year’s results at a number of U.S. colleges (– indicates the college has not released this data).
