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 2,100 students in our incoming class. That can make our task difficult.

We know a lot of you are pretty remarkable candidates that 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.

To Students and Counselors from California, Florida, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Texas, and Islands in the Caribbean:

If you and your families have been impacted by the recent natural disasters, please know you are in our thoughts. Should you need assistance with the college application process, or require flexibility regarding submission of documents, please do not hesitate to contact your admission counselor.
