Emory University says it has received 24,114 undergraduate applications, a new record and a 19 percent jump from 2016.

“This strong upsurge in applications reflects Emory’s outstanding reputation as a fiercely competitive, robustly collaborative and highly compassionate university,” President Claire Sterk said in a press release. “This pool of strong applicants symbolizes Emory’s value on the world stage.”

Students applying to Emory can choose either the Emory College of Arts and Sciences on the Atlanta Campus, or they can study at Emory’s campus in Oxford, Ga.

“After sophomore year, students choose to complete their undergraduate degrees in Emory College, Goizueta Business School or the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing,” the press release says.

The university received applications from all 50 states.
