Student applications, academic profile at all-​​time high

North­eastern Uni­ver­sity received 49,822 under­grad­uate appli­ca­tions for 2,800 seats in the Fall 2014 freshman class — more than in any pre­vious year and a ratio of 18 appli­cants per seat. The group of admitted stu­dents exceeds all pre­vious bench­marks in terms of aca­d­emic achieve­ment, total appli­cants, and geo­graphic diversity.
