In the college blog post that I wrote for CBSMoneyWatch.com today, I explain 5 reasons why it’s become even more challenging trying to storm the gates of Harvard and other schools of that ilk.
Here are the five reasons why Ivy League admissions are tougher:
- Cynical marketing by Ivy League and other elite universities.
- Moody bond ratings.
- Rising popularity of the Common Application.
- U.S. News & World Report college rankings.
- Unimaginative counselors at expensive prep school.
Please check out my CBSMoneyWatch blog, where I discuss this Ivy League development in detail. I’m not going to write this stuff down twice!
