Application rates for some Minnesota colleges and universities

Here are the application and admission rates gathered over the past two weeks or so from a number of Minnesota public and private colleges and universities.

Some of these institutions have rolling admissions, or are open-access colleges, so application- and selectivity rates don’t really apply to them.

(And if you see any errors or necessary changes, please contact me and I’ll update.)
