College Admission Trends for the Class of 2027




As the college admissions process for the class of 2023 winds down, it’s clear to see that the landscape of college admissions has significantly changed. Application inflation, lower overall admit rates, and a focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) policies have all shifted the college admissions landscape. Application inflation is a term used to describe the sharp increase in the number of college applications submitted each year. This has caused colleges to become increasingly selective with their admissions process, leading to lower overall admit rates.


In addition, Early Decision (ED) and Early Action (EA) admit rates are also lower due to the increased competition. The increased focus on DEI policies has also had a significant impact on college admissions. Many colleges have shifted their admissions process to prioritize students of color, first-generation college students, and low-income students. This shift has created a more equitable admissions process and has allowed students from diverse backgrounds to have a better chance of being accepted. International students have also become a major factor in the college admissions process. As colleges strive to create a globally diverse student body, they have seen an increase in international applicants. This has caused colleges to become even more selective in their admissions process, as they try to balance their need for a diverse student body with their limited number of spots.


Course rigor, your personal statement and essay supplements play an increasingly important role in the college admissions process. Colleges are looking for students who have challenged themselves academically and have excelled in rigorous classes. Your personal statement and essay supplements are also a great way to stand out from the crowd and demonstrate why you are a great fit for the college.

Finally, submitting your SAT or ACT scores will also help you in the college admissions process. According to the published information on successful admits, it's very clear that 2/3rd of them or more submitted ACT or SAT test scores above the 50% range from the previous cycle. We will continue to see higher ACT and SAT scores.


As the college admissions process for the class of 2023 comes to a close, it’s clear to see that the landscape of college admissions has changed significantly. Application inflation, lower overall admit rates, and a focus on DEI policies have all shifted the college admissions landscape. Additionally, course rigor and the personal statement/essay supplements have become increasingly important, and submitting your SAT or ACT scores will give you a better chance of being accepted.
