class of 2022 college application numbersTop Universities Report Record-High Number of Applications for the 2017-18 College Admissions Cycle

Many colleges and universities are releasing stats on their college application numbers for the class of 2022, and several are reporting record-setting applicant pools.

As students continue to apply to more colleges than ever before, applicant pools at some of the country’s top institutions continue to grow year after year – and become even more selective as students compete for a limited number of spots.

This year, NYU reported that 75,307 students applied for admission to the class of 2022 – “the most applicants received by any private university in the United States,” according to the university.

Brown University received a record-high number of applications to the class of 2022, with 35,368 students applying – an 8% increase over the year before. Yale University also reported a record-setting applicant pool, with 35,305 students applying to the class of 2022.

These record-high application numbers come just a month after many colleges reported record-low early admission rates for the class of 2022, making for a very competitive college admissions cycle at some of the country’s most selective colleges and universities.

Here are some available class of 2022 college application numbers:
