Ivies Admit Rates - Class 2013

MyOpinionMyOpinion Registered User Posts: 775 Member
edited April 2009 in College Admissions
Harvard 7 (about same last year 7.1)
Yale 7.5 ( from 8.6)
Columbia 9.8 (from 10 last year)
Princeton 9.8 (higher than last year 9.3)
Brown 10.8 ( from 13.3)
Dartmouth 12 (from 13.2)
U Penn 17 (about same from last year)
Cornell 19 (from 20 last year)


The biggest drop this year was for Brown which also had the highest increase in applicants from last year (21 %)

Princeton was the only one to have a higher admit rate.

    Brown was interesting this year. A lot of competitive applicants from my school didn't get into Brown when they seemed perfectly capable of doing so, not that it was ever a sure thing.

    As for me, I got into Harvard and Yale but got waitlisted at Brown.

    Wow...I'm glad to have snagged my acceptance at Columbia, and a harvard waitlist spot.

    I know a few on that same situation. I think no one can ever figure out which way these institutions go.

    Of course what we dont know is -- has the average number of ivy apps per student increased.

    Based on these numbers:
    "Harvard 7 (about same last year 7.1)
    Yale 7.5 ( from 8.6)
    Columbia 9.8 (from 10 last year)
    Princeton 9.8 (higher than last year 9.3)
    Brown 10.8 ( from 13.3)
    Dartmouth 12 (from 13.2)
    U Penn 17 (about same from last year)
    Cornell 19 (from 20 last year)"

    The percentage changes from the prior rate were:
    Hvd -1.4%
    Yale -12.8%
    Col -2.0%
    Pton +5.4%
    Brn -18.9%
    DMouth -9%
    Penn n/a
    Cornell -5%

    Maricelag: what you should do? Look up humility and sensitivity in the dictionary.

    re: Princeton --

    I think I recall reading that last year Princeton took fewer in admittance, and purposely created a very large wait list.

    Perhaps this year it was a different admit/wait proportion.

    In the end, they still fill the class.

  • Red_GloryRed_Glory Registered User Posts: 144 Junior Member
    maricelag: don't kid yourself
    just go to the school you were actually accepted to i.e. state school
  • XX55XXXX55XX Registered User Posts: 1,014 Member
    No need to lament... Most of us will be going to Tier II or even Tier III schools anyway.

    Only a select few go a university deemed "elite" and even fewer attend an Ivy.
