More than 6,000 applicants are now vying for admission at Texas A & M University, the flagship university in College Station, Texas.
The University of Texas at Austin and UT Austin are the only two major U.S. universities that have not had a new batch of applications arrive in the last week.
More than 30,000 applications have been received, according to a release by the University System of Texas.
In the last four weeks, there have been more than 1.1 million applicants from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, with the average application fee at $8,000.
“Our admissions process has been consistently and consistently high and consistently well received by the students,” Texas A.&M President and CEO, Art Briles, said in a release.
“The admission process is an ongoing process that we have dedicated to providing the best education for our students.”
The university announced on Wednesday that it has received more than 2.4 million applications from students from more than 70 states and more than 180 countries.

The university has a $30 million budget for the upcoming school year.
In an effort to maintain the quality of its student body, the university has implemented a system of merit pay, which allows students to be paid a fixed salary based on their college application results.
This year, Texas A.-M is also using an online admissions platform, edX, which will be used to process the more than 600,000 student applications it receives each year.
“We have a very competitive admissions process and I know we are going to continue to improve that process and that is our priority,” Briles said.
The news comes after the University of Kansas announced that its application was rejected more than a month ago after only 10 applicants.
More: The school also announced on Thursday that it will suspend the admissions process for two weeks starting Friday.
The Kansas decision comes after a number of other states began suspending the admission process.
The school has not issued an explanation for its decision.
“It was very difficult to get an admission offer because there were so many applications,” said Jessica Kuebler, an associate professor in the department of communications at UT Austin.
“I think they are frustrated because they can’t make any headway.”
