waiting for the decisions."
Registrar Jeri Tatken of
Southfield High School in
Southfield, Mich., concurred that the
University, along with Michigan
State, is the top choice for most
* Southfield High students.
Yet for out-of-state students,
factors such as tuition may have
spurred the current decrease in the
number of acceptances to University
"It's especially out-of-state -
the number of people that have ac-
cepted admissions is down," Swain
John Keating, director of
Guidance at Walt Whitman High
School in Bethesda, Md., said the
University is one of its seniors' top
choices. Last year - out of a class
of about 330 -49 Whitman seniors
applied to the University; 21 were
accepted and 11 enrolled.
Swain said that while private col-
leges may be affected by families
facing economic turmoils, he has not
noticed discrepancies in the number
of students applying to public uni-
"To the extent that there will be a
decrease, it will be in the more ex-
pensive private schools," he said.
But he added that everyone is keep-
ing financial worries in mind.
"The economy where we are -
the Washington, D.C., area - is in a
depressed state, so there's a lot more
concern about financial aid and
scholarships," he said.
Indian Hill High School in
Cincinnati usually has six to eight
students out of a senior class of 110
people apply to the University every
year, half of whom actually end up
coming, said Senior Counselor Pat
White added that while the ratio
of applications sent to in-state vs.
I think financial
concerns are going to
be weighed more in
- Rosemarie Fabrezio
director of guidance
Orange High School
out-of-state and public vs. private
colleges has stagnated, this year stu-
dents are hesitant to finalize deci-
sions before receiving all admission
offers and financial aid packages.
"In the past, students would
commit earlier, but now they're
waiting until that May 1 deadline,"
White said. "I think they're waiting
until everything comes in."
Rosemarie Fabrezio, director of
. guidance at Orange High School in
Cleveland, said that from an esti-
mated class size of 150, usually 20
to 25 seniors will come to the
"We have 15 admits already this
year, so we're doing well," she said.
Fabrezio said high costs appeared
to be deterring students from apply-
ing to some private universities.
"We're seeing an increase of state-
supported schools because of finan-
cial concerns," she said.
Although Swain said students
base their decision to attend a par-
ticular school on numerous vari-
ables, such as size, location, aca-
demic quality, and social life, he
added, "There is always some fallout
that can be attributed to cost."
While the University attempts to
garner out-of-state students through
programs such as college night,
alumni recruiting, and high school
visits, Swain indicated the
University is concerned about its
pocketbook as well.
"You have to account for
(decreased acceptances) as much as
you can, but you just can't do it
arbitrarily," he said. "It costs money
- we kind of have to watch our
Despite an apparent decrease in
the number of out-of-state high
school students accepting University
admittances, Swain said he feels the
slight increase in overall applica-
tions reflects positively on the
He said, "When you can keep
from dropping then you know that
you're doing something right."

the number of applications to the
public university is up about 8 per-
"(Our tuition) is low in compari-
son to most schools. The fact that
we're advertised as a good buy may
have something to do with it,"
More students are applying to
UNC - particularly out-of-state
students - because of the school's
growing academic reputation, Folger
Private colleges are also receiv-
ing more applications from outside
Assistant Director of Admissions
at George Washington University
Andrew Flagel said, "We've seen
more applicants from outside our
market area - the North Atlantic
Both Lloyd Bell, associate direc-
tor of admissions at the University
of Arizona, and Gil Martinez, assis-
tant director of undergraduate ad-
missions at Notre Dame, said they
have seen more applicants than
usual from California. While Bell
gave no explanation, Martinez said
the 10 percent increase is reflective
of problems within the University of
Admissions officers at many pri-
vate universities reported application
increases, as well. Officials at
George Washington University and
Duke University reported slight in-
creases in applications while admin-
istrators at the University of
Pennsylvania reported a 30 percent
"We saw a large increase," said
Mary Lynn Alton, assistant director
of admissions at Rice, who said the
school received 7,500 applications
-20 percent more than last year.
"Rice got some publicity this
year - a couple of very big articles.
'The number of high
school graduates has
gone down in
Michigan, in the region
and in the nation.'
- Richard Hensen
MSU Assoc. Director
One Money magazine ranked Rice
as the best buy in higher education,
and U.S. News and World Report
printed that Rice has consistently
been the best in several categories,"
Northwestern administrators also
attribute the 11 percent rise in appli-
cations to the school to a publicity
upsurge, such as the school's rising
rating in the U.S. News and World
But Worth Gowell,
Northwestern's assistant director of
admissions, credited the increased
number of applications to the efforts
of admissions office employees,
who he said used a more personal
approach with students this year.
"Students are applying to more
schools now than in the past. (They)
are hearing they have more choices,"
"High school seniors are being
told it's a buyer's market and some
schools may take you (that wouldn't
have last year). Students are more
savvy because of the media ."
While administrators speak of "a
buyer's market," they say applicants
are not challenging themselves in
high school by taking tougher
Northwestern's applicants' test
scores are the same, but their school
performances - specifically grade
point averages and class difficulty
- are lower than average. Gowell
said students are being told that test
scores are the most important factor
in college admissions and they are
protecting their grade point averages
by not taking Advanced Placement
Larry Gonzalez, an associate di-
rector in the office of admissions at
Indiana University, said the school's
applicants are quite strong. Similar
reports came from Rice and Duke.
Gowell said Northwestern appli-
cants are taking fewer risks in their
personal statements, and "are writing
essays that are politically correct."
