College Counselor, Don Put, recently shared the acceptances to Colleges,  Conservatories & Art Schools. The complete list is published on idyllwildarts.org:

 2012 College & Conservatory Acceptances

This year Idyllwild Arts students applied to a total of 390 colleges, universities, conservatories and art schools. On average, each senior applied to seven different schools. Idyllwild Arts Academy seniors received significant acceptances to some of the nations’ top programs, including – Cooper Union, NYU-Tisch, USC, Rhode Island School of Design, The Juilliard School, UC Berkeley, Northwestern, University of Michigan, Central St. Martins and UCLA among many others. In addition, many of these students received full scholarships to schools such as NYU, Juilliard, Peabody Institute, Cleveland Institute of Music, New England Conservatory, Boston Conservatory and Hofstra University. Other students were offered scholarships as well to very competitive programs across the nation.

In regards to acceptances Don stated “I’ve definitely seen surprises; that is, some students getting into a school I wouldn’t have predicted while others not getting into places I would have expected them to.  Overall, though, the trend is a more difficult environment for college applications and less ability to predict the outcome, especially for high-target schools. “

At Idyllwild Arts we’ve embraced new technology to help students with their application process. Don mentioned that “this was our first year using the web-based program, Naviance, to help students with their college/art school/conservatory applications and I think it was a valuable addition to our arsenal of tools. Naviance is a tool that compiles data like GPA, test scores, assessments, program completion, graduation plans, and career goals in one place where it can be used by students and families to make informed decisions.”

The process for applying to post-secondary education continues to become more competitive each year. Don stated “from the information I’ve seen, most colleges/universities/art schools/conservatories received approximately 7% – 11% more applications this year than last, and this seems to be a trend that started a few years ago.”  It takes an active and engaged student to compete in a process that only becomes more competitive with each passing year.
