Harvard, Dartmouth See Number of Applications Plunge

by College Fix Staff on April 25, 2014

Applications to two of the nation’s most coveted Ivy League schools dropped this year.

The number of applications Harvard received fell by 2%.

Things were even worse at Dartmouth.

Education Post reports that Dartmouth saw the number of students applying drop by a staggering 14%. The decline comes after a year full of scandal, including reports of fraternity hazing and sexual harassment.

We at The College Fix have our own theory about this decline. This was one of the most brutally cold winters in recent memory in the U.S. Who in their right mind wants to spend four years in rural New Hampshire after such a winter?

Blame global cooling.

Seriously.
