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 2020, 6,885 students were selected as Finalists out of 18,500 applications. Of those Finalists, 1,464 were selected for Match Scholarships, and approximately 2,000 additional Finalists 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 Match or Regular Decision.

Below are QuestBridge acceptance rates from previous years:

  2020 2019 2018 2017 2016
Applicants 18,500 14,926 16,248 15,606 14,491
Finalists 6,885 5,842 6,507 5,759 5,338
Match Scholarship Recipients 1,464 1,127 1,044 918 767
Regular Decision admits* 2,000 2,000 2,000 2,000 1,800

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.
