The East Coast Elite

For the class of 2017, Ivy League universities received 30,910 applications and only accepted 2,828 students, or 9% (Allen Grove, About.com Guide).


While it is very competitive to get into one of these eight schools, it can be worth the effort as an Ivy diploma means:

  • World class education
  • Access to an elite network
  • Respected by companies
  • Can earn 30% more 

If you aspire to attend one of these elite schools, you really need a good foundation to the Ivy League, which means attending one of the outstanding high schools in the area.
