NACAC list: schools still accepting students for fall

<p>The NACAC (Nat'l. Assoc. for College Admissions Counseling) list of schools which still have openings for the fall and are still taking applications has been posted. (It's officially called the "Space Availability Results".)</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>You can select multiple states to view by holding down the Control key and clicking on several states of interest. You can see whether each school has limited or significant space in the freshman and transfer classes, and whether there is still institutional aid money or housing available.</p>

<p>There are a lot of great schools on that list!</p>

<p>Thanks mootmom for this excellent info!</p>

<p>(bumping to page 1, since this is usually a popular list come the month of May...)</p>

<p>The NACAC Space Availability Survey is a good starting point, but if you don't see a school on the list, don't assume that they are not still interested in taking applications. There are actually quite a few schools that are not in the Survey that are still taking applications, including a number of Common Application members. And, it never hurts to call or have your guidance counselor call any school of interest directly and ask if they might still have time to take a look at a late application - as things shake out in the next week or two, a number of schools will often consider a few last minute applicants.</p>

<p>Interesting -- the school I attend (University of colorado at colorado springs) isn't on the list but I know they take applicants up until the first week of classes in the fall.</p>

<p>Hsmomstef, Yes, that's why I posted what I did above. The NACAC Space Availability Survey is solely based on colleges self-reporting that they have openings. Many schools don't do that, and thus the NACAC list, while a good starting point, is not a complete list of schools that may still look at a few last minute applications.</p>

<p>wow - checked my homestate (PA) and was surprised to see Pitt is still taking apps. For those of you still looking, this is a good school in a good location.</p>

<p>My. I'm always amazed at the quality still available on the list , much less off it. Pitt and Baylor (conservative Baptist) in the research category and a couple of good women's colleges in Mills and Wesleyan ( in Georgia and one of the most diverse schools ever) are good bets. For LAC's I like Oglethorpe in Atlanta , and Ohio Wesleyan and then Westminster (Mo) and Willamette . Uof Dallas with that fantastic Rome year and St. John's (Annapolis) for some kids could be first choice of all choices. Redlands, Eckerd, Illinois College, Coe, Ripon, Eckerd, Maryville and two little bitty schools -Huntingdon and Lyon all have their fans. There are a number of schools here that were on D's big list of possibles. Don't discount them too quickly.</p>

<p>My brother went to Oglethorpe and loved it. He transferred from a big state school. He got much more personal attention from and interaction with his professors at Oglethorpe.</p>

<p>Simmons (Boston). A fine place for someone who wants a good education in a great town.</p>

Colorado State
Adams State
Loyola Chi
St. John's MD
Springfield College
