20 Most Popular Colleges for Arlington’s Class of 2020

These schools received the most applications from APS seniors last year.

It wasn’t the experienced they’d planned for, but Arlington’s Class of 2020 graduated (virtually) in the spring and headed off to college this fall amid the uncertainty of a global pandemic.  Here are the colleges and universities that received the most applications from those graduating seniors. Not surprisingly, in-state schools were the most sought after, although a handful of out-of-state schools also topped Arlington students’ wish lists. The application data below, provided by students from H-B Woodlawn Secondary Program, Washington-Liberty High School, Yorktown High School and Wakefield High School, were drawn from our annual College Bound admissions chart, which ran in the Sept./Oct. 2020 issue of Arlington Magazine.  Tuition and enrollment data are from U.S. News and World Report‘s annual Best Colleges rankings.
