Applications Jump for Class of 2013

Various top U.S. Universities are seeing a great jump in applications for Class of 2013. This continues the uptrend of increase from Early Decision here .

For a number of universities, it is the highest increase ever. I'm still waiting for the number of my alma mater, but I think it would also increase quite significantly following the trend of other peer institutions.

Brown - Up 21% (to 24,900)
Stanford - Up 20% (to 30,348)
MIT - Up 17%
Duke - Up 17% (to 23,780)
Virginia - Up 17% (to 21,750)
Yale - Up 14% (from 22,817 to 26,000) - For Class of 2012, admits 1,952
Dartmouth - Up 9%
Harvard - Up 5.6% (from 27,462 to 29,000) - For Class of 2012, admits 1,948
Princeton - Up 2.3% (to 21,869) - For Class of 2012, admits 2,122
NYU - Up 0.3% (to 37,180)
