Thank you!
Very impressive stats and thus very useful post for many current juniors.

To make it easier to read…

Have different groups:
REJECTED
public universities
private universities
ACCEPTED
public universities
private universities

and include net cost next to each
*net cost = (tuition fees room board) - (scholarships grants)

Thanks, I’d love to know who gets in, my daughter’s friend just got into Cornell but not honors at Rutgers.

I just made a post about this!
