Brown University has seen a 40 percent increase in transfer student applications over last year, with more than 1,400 requests received, the Brown Daily Herald reports. This year was the first that transfer applicants could apply online, to which admissions officials partially attribute the spike. "We'd like to think (the rise) is due to the popularity of Brown," the admissions director said.

Officials also expect to increase transfer enrollment to 80 in the fall and 40 in the spring.
