The Ivy League Agenda – Taking the First Steps to Learning More

So you want to get into an Ivy League? Find out more about the eight campuses in this article as well as the differences between how many students applied as compared to how many were accepted from this year to last year.  

 

  All high school students who excel in their academic studies want to eventually attend one of the most prestigious universities someday. They know that the years spent doing hours of homework to keep up with their classes, all of the activities and clubs they were involved in and all of the extra time they put in otherwise will help them not only in figuring out what their strengths lie in but also what kinds of careers they will eventually choose to pursue. To do this, they will need to find the right college campus for them to accomplish their goals, one that is known for its higher pursuit of education and one that will help them to land the jobs they want in their professional lives after college. That is why many students have and will continue to apply to the “best of the best” schools in our country- the so-called “Ivy League” schools.

 

Yes those monuments to education, that have stood the test of time and have a history of academic success. But where to begin to find out more about them? We know that our students who attend our classes and camps at Areteem Institute want to eventually be seated in one of these fine institutions, but where to start looking?

 Now let’s look at some statistics!

 

Comparing the class of 2018 and class of 2019 stats for admitted freshman from last fall 2014 and this fall 2015 respectively, there is a slight decrease in admitted students overall although each of the Ivy Leagues differ in this regard. To clarify, here is a run-down of the students who applied and were then admitted under early action or early decision applications from this year and last year. Keep in mind that the class of 2019 stats are still being calculated as not all of the Ivy Leagues have published this information yet.

 

Ivy League Schools Students Applied To More This Year than Last Year: Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Penn,
