College Admissions Summaries

With a company name like Top Tier Admissions, we often work with students and parents who are targeting the Ivy League, or near-Ivy universities. Given Dr. Michele Hernandez’ experience working in admissions at Dartmouth, Mimi Doe’s Master’s in Education from Harvard, and Dr. Kristen Willmott’s experience working in admissions at Harvard, we offer an insider’s perspective to Ivy and near-Ivy admissions processes.

We are delighted each fall and spring with the acceptance news we receive from students who applied in the early and/or regular round to some of the top institutions in the country. At the same time, we continually work to prepare for the next round of applicants and client families who are targeting these incredibly competitive institutions.

While Ivy League admissions rates continue to be extraordinarily low, it is by no means impossible to obtain a spot at one of these schools. For the exceptional student who works hard and prepares for college applications well in advance, a top tier college education at a school like Yale, MIT, Stanford, NYU, etc. is still within reach.

Here we offer key information on top colleges and universities in the U.S., including terrific Ivy, near-Ivy, and liberal arts programs. Use this information to understand acceptance rates, applicant information, and unique aspects of the schools as you narrow and refine your list of targeted programs. Recent statistics on college admissions rates have been ground-breaking in many ways –learn how, why, and in what way in our overview of top tier colleges and universities.
