GW received a record-breaking 20,475 undergraduate applications this year, representing an increase of 3 percent from last year and making admission to the University this year more competitive than ever, University administrators said this week.
“I’m pleased to report that applications are up from last year,” Napper said in an e-mail. “We have received the most ever applications in University history.”
Napper noted said the only other time the University received more than 20,000 applications was for the fall of 2004 when it had 20,100 applicants.
Following last year’s 2-percent-yield increase, Senior Vice President for Student and Academic Support Services Robert Chernak said the admissions office will be significantly more selective this year.
“It is more likely this year that we will accept a smaller percentage of applicants than last year and establish a slightly larger wait list,” Chernak said.
