Miami University isn't losing its appeal. The university says as of Wednesday 21,027 potential students have applied for the fall 2013 semester. That surpasses 20,314 applications received in 2012.
Miami says it expects this year's number to grow even higher by the February first enrollment deadline.
In a release, Michael Kabbaz, associate vice president for enrollment management, says, “Our students achieve great success on campus and after graduation as a result of the personal education they receive at Miami. This continues to be widely recognized by not only prospective students and families, but also by employers and professional schools."
