Freshman Applications Up 12%

<p>The President sent out his midwinter report today: </p>

<p>“Trends for the fall 2010 entering classes are also positive. We again have a record number of applicants for our freshman class, including the highest number ever of early decision candidates. Overall, freshman applications have increased by 12 percent, with early decision applications up by an even larger percentage. While it is much earlier in the enrollment cycle for transfer and graduate applications, these also are showing increases at present. In short, nothing we see in the current numbers suggests that the trends are inconsistent with the targets we have set for the next academic year.”</p>
