FGCU sees boost in number of freshman applications
FORT MYERS, Fla. - Dunk City didn't just boost school spirit, but also interest in Florida Gulf Coast University all across the country.
The number of incoming freshman applications increased almost 35% from last year. More than 10,000 hopefuls have already applied for the coming school year, making it harder than ever to get in.
"We have always been competitive here at FGCU. With our recent notoriety and reputation of our academic programs we are becoming even more competitive," President Wilson Bradshaw said.
Only around 3,000 students will get an acceptance letter this year.
