Any idea about what the acceptance rate was for the class of 2013/2017?

    It isn't out yet since some people are still applying. My guess would be around 60% because not many people applied this year. Last year, 47,552 applied to the main campus and 25,772 got accepted which makes the rate around 53%. This year the number of apps received is 9 percent lower than last year.

    "Student applications to Penn State University for 2013-14 are running 9 percent behind last year's pace, President Rodney Erickson told a board of trustees meeting this afternoon in Hershey."

    Xtreme, do note though that they experienced a near all time high for applications last year.
