"Approximately 44,000 students applied to Tulane this year, one of the highest numbers among private institutions in the country."

"According to a tally of the most selective private universities on nytimes.com, Duke received 26,770 applicants, Emory University received 15,549; Cornell University received 36,337; and Stanford received 32,022. Tulane did not appear on the list. Vanderbilt University’s office of admissions said it received approximately 22,000 applicants."

I am glad to see it. Lots of kids applying shows immense interest, before we get down to the minutia of yield, etc. The Tulane admissions folks are going to be one busy bunch.

TU= $0
Vandy = $50
Duke = $75

Me and you can help boost the Tulane numbers by filling out apps, and it won't cost us a dime...............

Tulane application is free if you do it online. I believe the essay is optional as well. It makes for a lot of applications and TU has never been explicit about how many are actually followed up with transcripts and SAT scores. Either way though it is a huge number of applications. USNWR report tracks acceptance rate which is why we want all the applications. Our yield, accepted students who matriculated is very low.

What does it all mean? Not that much other than that we are desperately trying to game the USNWR rankings and so far with little effect. Doubtless what hasn't worked so far will become a raging success if we just do it a little longer.

Peter,

How long have you been employed by USN&WR or Princeton Review university/college ratings service? I imagine at your experience level, you are a Informational Decision Manager(Dart thrower at the great college ratings wheel) and not an Specialized Information Analyst (Retriever of darts) .
