Number of first-choice applicants soars at UTSC


After many months of hard work by countless staff and faculty, early results from the 2011 student recruitment drive are in—and they are very, very exciting. The number of first-choice direct-entry applicants to UTSC (i.e., high school graduates who identified UTSC as their number-one choice of post-secondary school) is up 18% over last year as of March 7, 2011. And across the University of Toronto as a whole, first-choice applications are up 5.7%.

Even more impressively, the number of first-choice applicants with average grades of 90% or above has increased 27% over last year at UTSC. In other words, UTSC is attracting more and more of the best and brightest students to this campus.

“University applications are up slightly province-wide,” says registrar and director of enrollment management Curtis Cole, “but they are up encouragingly at U of T, and they are up very encouragingly at UTSC. More great students are hearing about us every day. The numbers are up across the board.”
