Finding the Right Fit

Students meet on the Lincoln Center campus

We know how much time you’ve spent trying to find a good fit for college. We’re looking for students who are the right fit, too. Each year, we have room for only about 2,200 students in our incoming class. That can make our task difficult.

We know a lot of you are pretty remarkable candidates who would make a real contribution to any institution you attend. Learn more about what we're looking for and then we'll walk you through how to apply.
