The Globe and Mail is reporting many Canadian colleges saw a 20 to 80 percent increase in US applications this past year. To be very clear, we don’t believe the election of Donald Trump has had any type of material impact on this trend. We believe the most likely causes are (a) the increased competition for spots in top US colleges, (b) the increased recruiting efforts of the Canadian colleges, (c) the drop in the Canadian currency.
From our discussions with our US clients considering admission to international colleges, we’ve seen the most common reason being concern about the increased competition to top US colleges.
Best of luck with your applications!
