The National Association for College Admission Counseling has just released their list of colleges that still are accepting applications for Fall 2013. There are currently 210 colleges around the country with openings for freshman and/or transfer students.
If you are a senior and still have not found a college to attend for Fall 2013 head on over to the list. It provides not just the name of the college and what state they are located in but also whether they have openings for transfer students, have housing available and states if they have financial aid available. However, get over there quickly because as colleges fill up, your options will be much more limited.

While the economy is slowly recovering, some recent college graduates are still struggling to find work.
Last month, Curran Consulting Group analyzed Bureau of Labor Statistics data on unemployment and college graduates. The report stated that 6.4% of young college graduates were unemployed in March 2013. It is true that those with a college degree experience a better chance of being employed , but young college grads are “the group with the greatest debt burden.” And, according to the Economic Policy Institute’s brief The Class of 2013, over ”the next 10 to 15 years, those in the Class of 2013 will likely earn less than if they had graduated when job opportunities were plentiful.”
The context for college graduates and their struggle to find suitable, well-paying work that can help alleviate their student debt provides a fascinating backrgound for a recent study from More than a Resumé.

There are many differing thoughts on this subject, and it’s quite controversial as to which vinegar to use. Some people claim only raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar should be used for Candida, while others claim white vinegar is just as good for Candida.
The vinegar works because Candida can only live within certain pH levels, and vinegar regulates the pH of your body. Many foods in the American diet make your blood acidic, foods such as animal protein, dairy such as cheese and milk. I Read more…

The New York Times has a chart listing the 2013 College Acceptance Rates for many of the most selective colleges.
The chart lists the name of the college, the number of 2013 total applicants, the number of 2013 applicants accepted, the number denied, the number waitlisted as well as the admit rate for any early admissions program the college has, the regular admit rate and the overall admit rate.
Beneath the 2013 chart are the charts for 2012 and 2011 so that you can compare application and acceptance numbers from the past 3 years.
I am bringing this to your attention because I think it important to understand how competitive college admissions is at some of the most well known colleges.
HOWEVER, do not forget that despite the dismal numbers reflected in these charts, most colleges in the US actually accept most of the students that apply.
