Applications up at Loyola, Goucher

Two more colleges in the D.C. area -- both in Baltimore, actually -- are reporting a rise in applicants for the class of 2014.

One is Goucher College. From Michael O'Leary, vice president for enrollment management: "As of this morning, fall 2010 freshman applications to Goucher are running 10 percent ahead of where they were at this time last year. In addition, Goucher received a record number of Early Action applications from students indicating that Goucher was among their top college choices. . . Our numbers are still fluid given the fact that yesterday was our deadline, and we're still processing electronic and "snail" mail. Nevertheless, we anticipate that our fall 2010 targeted freshman class of 400 students will be chosen from more than 3,700 applications."

The other is Loyola University Maryland. The school has received 10,675 applications as of Monday, an increase of 24 percent over this point last year.
