College Admissions on the Rise

The number of high school graduates going on to college is higher than ever.

However, that has some students worried about tougher competition to get into the college of their choice.

The Department of Education says 60% of high school grads say they plan to get a college education.

The increasing number has some students worried that it will only get harder to get into their first choice school.

Admissions professionals say four-year colleges still accept about 70% of applicants.

However, getting into a highly selective school is more difficult.

They say students should make sure to apply early and do plenty of research.
