Princeton Review survey finds University of Michigan is a top 'dream school' for applicants
The Princeton Review asked nearly 10,000 college applicants, spread throughout all 50 states, what dream college they'd attend if cost didn't matter and acceptance was guaranteed.
U-M is on the minds of many of those surveyed.
The college is the ninth-most referenced dream school among students. Of the nearly 4,200 parents surveyed, U-M is the No. 10 dream school.
Stanford University and Harvard University were ranked first and second, respectively, by both applicants and parents. Other public universities considered among the top 10 dream schools by students are the University of California's Berkley and Los Angeles campuses.
Seventy percent of students surveyed by the Princeton Review said they were highly stressed by the college application process, 81 percent said the economy was affecting where they applied to school and 89 percent said scholarships and financial aid is very necessary for their families to pay for college.
The survey results were released in late March.
