Given how sophisticated colleges have become in recruiting applicants, it's dangerous to rely on old admissions data.
We've taken a look at our coverage universe and identified schools with notable admission rate differences between the Class of 2021 and the Class of 2020. In addition to providing the admission rates, we've included some commentary to explain why as well as a link back to the source article.
Relative to last year, the number of schools with notable changes has doubled.
