Do you know that admissions officers at Harvard, Yale and other top US universities start tracking applicant profiles as early as Grade 9? With acceptance rates dropping at every top university (e.g., NYU’s acceptance rate dropped from 33% in 2015 to 8% in 2022), it is crucial to know what an applicant should do each year to maximize their application outcomes.
