A new study by Stamats shows a steady increase in the use of online applications from 2006 to 2010.

"We can expect even more students to apply online in the future. Interestingly, students are
not only using their laptops and desktops, but smartphones and tablets to apply online," says the report.
"As a consequence, we expect the number of apps to climb even as the number of students
remains flat. More of these apps will be 'stealth' and soft. As a result, the need to use a
dynamic prospect profiling system to qualify your applicants will be critical."
