US students dream of NYU before Harvard

April 2, 2007

A survey of 4,600 college applicants published in the Princeton Review reveals that New York University is still the "dream school" for US college applicants -- for the third year in a row.  Students' second choice was Harvard. Among 1,300 parents surveyed, Stanford University was the first choice, followed by Princeton. 2/3 of both parents and students reported "high" or "very high" stress levels.  The Chronicle of Higher Education (Subscription Required)
