Do Colleges Know Where Else You Apply?

<p>Is there any way for a college to know where else you apply, and, if so, would applying to another school SCEA hurt your chances RD at another?</p>

<p>some colleges actually require the applicant to write a list of the other colleges they might apply to. </p>

<p>I've heard that ivies exchange student information...I don't really know about others.</p>


<p>One of S's schools asks this question on the application. Three others asked it in the interview. Otherwise, I don't think they have any way of knowing.</p>

<p>I've heard Ivies (or other similar grouped schools) exchange lists of ED applicants, to see if anyone applied ED to more than one school. Not a smart thing for a kid to do, by the way, if the schools find out both will turn you down. </p>

<p>But I don't think schools exchange RD info.</p>
