Harvard receives a record number of applicants

February 11, 2016

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Harvard University has received a record 39,044 applications for next fall’s freshman class, a nearly 5 percent increase over last year.

The university attributed the rise to efforts to reach out to lower income students.

This year, nearly a quarter of applicants had their application fees waived due to financial hardship.

Director of Financial Aid Sally Donahue said applications have soared in the past decade since the university launched a financial aid program that charges students based on family income.
A fifth of current undergraduates are from families earning less than $65,000 a year. For these families, Harvard covers costs of attendance.

Applicants will find out if they have been admitted March 31. They have until May 1 to accept.

Last year, Harvard accepted about 5 percent of 37,307 applicants.

    Just lower the admission fee already. It’s too high anyway.

    Harvard boys are famous for their passion for clubbing and bar hopping… However they aren’t 21 yet, but they hang out like a pro… Why? I guess they managed to buy fake id https://idhurry.com
