Applications Rise for UHP [Good Article]

From the article:

“This is a vehicle for attracting some student[s] who might go to an Ivy,” Lerman said. “It gives an alternative for GW to present them with what might, in some ways, be a better educational experience because of its small scale that they may not get [at] an Ivy League university.”

The UHP has always offered the best of both worlds to our students: a bustling urban research university, and a close-knit community of intellectual rigor.  And the dual campus model perfectly reflects this coveted experience.

Each year, GWU attracts an increasingly competitive pool of applicants, and more and more of them are taking notice of the great opportunities the UHP offers.  The result: the UHP gets more and more applicants each year and is becoming increasingly selective.  This year, we had around 2700 students apply for about 125 spots in the freshman class.
