THE FLUTIE EFFECT IN COLLEGE ADMISSIONS
Current Juniors: Do you have the University of Georgia or TCU on your college list? After last night’s College Football Playoff game, you should consider Googling the “Flutie Effect.” It’s a phenomenon in college admissions where a winning football season usually results in a swell of applications in the next cycle. It is named for Doug Flutie, a Boston College quarterback who threw a successful Hail Mary to beat Miami in a nationally televised game in 1984, after which applications to Boston College surged. In the years since, a variety of winning sports programs (basketball, baseball, softball) has caused an explosion in college applications. And as application numbers grow, the admissions standards typically do as well.
In my role as a college admissions consultant, I am here to help you navigate the changes in admissions standards. Each year, my work involves researching trends, speaking with college admissions teams, and collaborating with my peers around the country. If you’re interested in learning more about how I can use all of this information to help you find and fund your ideal college experience, reach out using the button below or give me a call at 405-906-7044!
