SCEA acceptance rates at Yale, Harvard, and Princeton after Recruited Athletes
I am a rising senior who is almost certainly (>90% chance) going to be applying to Yale SCEA, but I am considering Harvard and Princeton too. Even though I know the SCEA acceptance rates tend to be between 15-20%, I am aware that the higher SCEA acceptance rate can be partially explained due to ~160 recruited athletes entering in the early round. I am not a recruited athlete. Does anybody have a rough sense or give me an estimate of how many recruited athletes apply so I can have a better sense of what the SCEA acceptance rate is after recruited athletes?6 replies
