Despite Scandal, Applications to Penn State Rise
The abuse scandal at Pennsylvania State University does not appear to have slowed applications to the school’s undergraduate programs.

As of Friday, applications to enroll next year at one of  the 20 campuses that comprise the Penn State system were up 4 percent when compared with the same period last year, with applications to the system’s University Park flagship in State College, Pa., up 2 percent, Anne Rohrbach, executive director for undergraduate admissions, said in an interview Wednesday.

All told, nearly 28,000 students have applied to be undergraduates next year on the University Park campus, compared to 27,370 who had done so last year at this time, Ms. Rohrbach said. Each is vying for one of about 7,200 seats in the freshman class. Though Penn State accepts applications year-round, on a rolling basis, the deadline for so-called “priority” applications — after which some programs will be considered closed out — was Wednesday.
