International Admission Rates to U.S. Colleges are at an All-Time Low!
“International students need to realize that they can’t simply look at overall admissions stats to determine their odds because most schools limit the international student population to 10 percent of the overall class. Even though colleges don’t admit to quotas, these numbers don’t vary much year to year, so they are what I would call virtual quotas. If you look at a school that has a 20 percent overall admissions rate, the admit rate for international students is likely to be closer to 5 percent—not to mention the fact that international students compete with other international students from 80-plus different countries, plus their own country. Schools might receive 300 applicants from China and then accept two or three.” – (Source: usnews.com/education/blogs/
