College consultants and students suggested that recent media attention and the cost of tuition could have caused this year’s decline in applications to the College. Dartmouth received 19,235 applications to the Class of 2018, a 14 percent decline from applications to the Class of 2017, and the second year in a row that the number has dropped. Last year, 3 percent fewer students applied to the Class of 2017 than had to the Class of 2016.
