I have heard anecdotal evidence that many selective colleges are becoming much more competitive. The reasons for this, I believe, are as follows:

1. The increasing number of 18 year olds in the general population (i.e. the "echo boom" of the Baby Boom generation).

2. The benefits of a strong economy and a booming stock market - college is easier to afford.
