    Thanks.
    Acceptance Rate for Class of 2021 Holds Steady at 32 Percent

    Boston College accepted 9,200 students out of 28,500 applications for admission to the Class of 2021, for an acceptance rate of 32 percent, Director of Undergraduate Admission John Mahoney said in an interview Monday. Last year’s rate was also 32 percent.

    The accepted number combines the early action admission pool with the regular decision pool. In December, 2,900 students were admitted early action out of 9,000 applicants, for an early action acceptance rate of 33 percent.

    Students accepted to the class of 2021 had a mean SAT of over 1400 on the new 1600-point scale, and a mean ACT of 33. SAT scores ranged from 1360 in the 25th percentile to 1480 in the 75th percentile, and ACT scores ranged from 32 in the 25th percentile to 34 in the 75th percentile.

    The 28,500 total applications were down 1 percent from last year’s total. Early action applications, however, increased this year from 8,500 in 2015 to 9,000 in 2016, a 5 percent rise.

    Students were admitted from 50 states and 61 foreign countries. Thirty-four percent of accepted students identify as AHANA—32 percent of the Class of 2020 identifies as AHANA or are international students of color. Mahoney said AHANA applications have also increased.

    This year’s numbers were largely similar to past years.

    “When you’re even in applications, as we are, there aren’t really powerful trends to report upon,” Mahoney said.

    That said, a couple of numbers stood out. The Connell School of Nursing, for example, saw a 7 percent rise in applicants this year. Mahoney said CSON’s level of selectivity has increased in the last couple of years. Men still make up about 1 percent of applicants to CSON, Mahoney said.

    “It’s one of those professions that is unjustifiably stereotyped as a female profession, so we’re just not seeing the volume still,” Mahoney said.

    Geographically, the applicant breakdown stayed mostly the same. Applications from California, however, decreased 7 percent this year, although Mahoney said the state has been seeing a dip in high school graduates. International applicants are down 6 percent, which Mahoney attributed to a decline in applicants from China, which colleges and universities are seeing around the U.S.

    BC accepted both the new SAT and the old, 2400-point version, but Mahoney said a relatively small percentage of applicants opted to submit the old version. There was some talk that raw scores might be a little higher on the 1400-point scale, but Mahoney said BC didn’t really see that come true.

    “We didn’t really see [the new version] as a radical shift in terms of using the tests as part of the evaluation,” he said.

    My daughter was accepted in EA in UChicago, Do you know the number of applicants? The acceptance rate EA/ED1/ED2 combined was 9%
  • paobs12paobs12 Registered User Posts: 124 Junior Member
    This is such a helpful thread, However, I'm confused by the stats about Georgetown RD. Are these from last year? I don't believe that this year's decisions will be mailed out until the end of this month. Any info would be much appreciated.
  • TestingearlyTestingearly Registered User Posts: 224 Junior Member
    @paobs12 - If you go back in this thread and read post 265 and 266 you will see that Georgetown already released all its class of 2021 numbers.

    Here's the Swarthmore release text. Thanks for posting @Corinthian. As for UChicago, I have not seen any published source for the ED/EA acceptance rate, so if someone has a link to that, please share.
    960 Students Admitted to Swarthmore Class of 2021

    Swarthmore College has sent letters of admission to 960 prospective members of the Class of 2021. Twenty-five percent of the admitted students are among the first generation in their family to attend college, and 31 percent are affiliated with local and national community-based organizations like QuestBridge. Sixty percent of the admitted students come from public and/or charter schools, 21 percent from private independent schools, 10 percent from parochial schools, and eight percent from schools overseas. Swarthmore expects to yield a first-year class of about 405 for next fall.

    “Swarthmore experienced an increase in applications this year from underrepresented students, first generation to college students, and international students,” says Jim Bock '90, vice president and dean of admissions. “The students in the admitted class value a vibrant, socially engaged, intellectual community of scholars in a residential liberal arts setting, and I am impressed by their broad array of talents and interests. We look forward to welcoming them to Swarthmore and seeing the impact they will leave on our campus and the world. I continue to be humbled by their love of learning, commitment to the common good, and the work they have done to support their families and communities.”

    The admitted students come from or represent six continents, 69 nations, and 49 U.S. states as well as the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and Virgin Islands. California is the most highly represented home state of members in the newly admitted class. Following, in order, are New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Illinois, Florida, and Arizona.

    China, with 14 students, is the most represented nation among non-U.S. citizens in the admitted class. Eight are from India, six are from Brazil and South Korea, five are from Mexico and Thailand, and four are from Hong Kong, Japan, and the United Kingdom. Three each are from Kenya, Nigeria, and Vietnam. Two each are from Canada, Chile, Greece, Pakistan, Paraguay, Peru, Rwanda, and Turkey. One each is from Bangladesh, Belarus, Bhutan, Bolivia, Colombia, Czech Republic, Egypt , Ethiopia, France, Germany, Ghana, Guatemala, Guinea, Indonesia, Ireland, Jordan, Mauritius, Mongolia, Morocco, Myanmar, New Zealand, Palestine, Poland, Russia, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, and Zambia.

    Additionally, there are many students who carry dual citizenship with the U.S. or who have permanent residency whose nationalities are not included in this summary.

    Ten percent of the 9,383 students who applied were offered a position in the first-year class. Of the admitted students attending high schools reporting class rank, 94 percent are in the top decile.

    Engineering is the most popular intended major among the admitted students. Next, in order, are political science, biology, economics, computer science, English literature, mathematics, psychology, biochemistry, and physics.

    Are you sure you want to be putting projected yields into your list? You're the listmaster so I defer to you.
