How can I evaluate my chances of gaining admission to a QuestBridge partner college through the National College Match?

QuestBridge -

To assess your chances of admission to one of our college partners through the National College Match, consider that in 2016, 5,338 students were selected as Finalists out of 14,491 applications. Of those Finalists, 767 were selected for College Match Scholarships, and approximately 1,800 students were admitted to a college partner with generous financial aid through QuestBridge Regular Decision. Please remember that admission to our college partners is very competitive, and ultimately it is the colleges that decide which students to admit, whether through the College Match or Regular Decision.

Below are QuestBridge acceptance rates from previous years:

  2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Applicants 14,491 13,264 11,654 12,818 9,585
Finalists 5,338 4,895 4,180 4,773 4,518
Match Scholarship Recipients 767 657 501 440 383
Regular Decision admits* 1,800 1,750 1,500 1,560 1,300


In addition, you may find it helpful to consult a statistical profile of last year's National College Match Finalists, as well as our selection criteria.

You can also find general admissions information, including acceptance rates, in the School Profile on the right side of each college partner's Overview page.
