Class of 2017 College Decisions

It’s the last week of classes for the class of 2017, which means that our seniors have chosen their desired colleges. As far as Australia to as close to home as College of Charleston, our Raptors are traveling to 26 states, District of Columbia, and around the globe on gap years. Compared to the class of 2016, who had 30.6% go to Clemson and 14.6% to USC, our graduating class has 40 students (27.8%) going to Clemson and 19 students (13.2%) going to USC. A significant difference between the class of 2016 and 2017 is the number of students who will be attending Ivy League universities in the fall. Last year, the class of 2016 had six students, while this year, we have two: Chris Diamond-Hettinger to Cornell University and Anna Tavormina to Harvard University. Three of our students will also be attending military academies: Isabel Eicher and Ethan Linhart will head to Colorado to the Air Force Academy, and Potter Seibels is going to the Naval Academy.

There are many students who will be spending the next four years together, but not at one of our public SC universities. Some of the most popular states where our Raptors are going are North Carolina (7 students), California (5), Virginia (5), Massachusetts (4), Georgia (4), and Louisiana (4). Four of our students are heading to Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana, seven are going to Furman University, and three are going to Wofford College. Some other statistics include: 84 (58.3%) of our seniors will remain in South Carolina, 99 (68.8%) will attend public universities, 27 students (18.8%) are going to honors colleges, and five students are taking gap years before heading off to college.

Best of luck to all of our seniors on the next chapter of their lives!
