This is a follow-up on last year's thread:


The numbers have started to come in. As an example, Dartmouth just released this:
Four hundred sixty-nine students were admitted to the Class of 2018 through the early decision process, the College announced on Dec. 11. The accepted students — selected from 1,678 early applicants — are intended to make up 40 percent of the Class of 2018, according to a College press release. The College received 1,678 early decision applications for the Class of 2018 as of the Nov. 8 deadline, a 6.7 percent increase from last year

The early decision numbers reflect a 27.9 percent acceptance rate, a nearly 2 percent decrease from the early admissions rate for the Class of 2017.

The mean SAT score for admitted students is 2156, and the mean ACT is 32.1, the press release states. The average SAT is slightly higher than last year’s mean of 2141 for students admitted through the early decision process, as well as the averages of 2146 and 2144 for the Classes of 2016 and 2015 respectivel

When adding to the thread, please make an effort to post the source of the story with a link like this:
