The University of Michigan has set another record for freshmen applications for the fall of this year. The school has held the record for several years now.

UMich has gotten the highest number of applications in terms of reviewing and processing for freshmen. The institution received 58,590 applications in total for the incoming class.

Michigan Live reported that this is a seven percent increase. UMich has offered admissions to over 14,000 students, university spokesman Rick Fitzgerald said. This year's total number of freshmen applications set a record for the school for the 11th consecutive year.

The initial figures also showed the same seven percent increase in applications that the university received for the fall of 2016. UM received and processed 55,500 applications last year.

Fitzgerald added that they expect to enroll a freshman class of an estimated 6,600 students. Of all the applications received last year, 10,959 were submitted by in-state students with 4,511 being offered admissions for an acceptance rate of 42.4 percent.

Out of the 35,783 applications submitted by students living in other states and the 8,758 applicants living in other countries, 10,815 were offered admission for an out-of-state acceptance rate of 24.5 percent.

Other universities and colleges in the U.S. have also seen a rise in applications for the class of 2021. Ivy League universities like Princeton got over 5,000 applications. This is an 18 percent jump from last year's early action data. The New Jersey school has only accepted 770 applicants so far.

Another Ivy League school, Harvard, already announced that it had 938 successful early applicants for this year. Meanwhile, University of California - Los Angeles (UCLA) received a whopping 102,107 applications, making it the first school to receive more than 100,000 applications.

However, international student applications have affected several universities in Michigan. Western Michigan, Grand Valley State, Wayne State and Michigan State have experienced a lower number of applications at either the graduate or undergraduate level when compared to the same time last year, another report of Michigan Live noted.
