2023 Admit Rate?

Question in the title. I'm wondering if the admission decisions released a few days ago included the admissions rate or application total for this year.

    Looks like Pomona and CMC are following Stanford's lead in not making a big deal about acceptance rates. From The Student Life (campus paper): "Similarly (to CMC) Pomona declined to release its acceptance rate for the class of 2023 until the admissions cycle ends, according to (Pomona College Director of Admissions Adam) Sapp, 'Our aim is to help move the admissions conversation toward finding the best fit and away from the focus on admission rates.'"

    Interesting. I was thinking it might've been because there was a decline in applicants, but maybe not!

    It was 6.96% last year, so that would be quite a coincidence!

    Pomona College HAS NOT released the Admissions Rate yet.

    I will be curious to see if they did not release this info because of a dip in applicants, or because they actually don't want to trump their admissions rate. Wouldn't it be rare if applicants went up and they didn't say that it was their most selective cycle ever, etc?

    Mercat, it may be interesting to note that although the overall acceptance rate at Pomona College in 2018 hovered just below 7%, it is rarely mentioned that many more females apply than males. As Pomona strives to assemble a balanced class....the male acceptance rate was 9.2%....the female acceptance rate was 6.5%...the male acceptance rate was 40%+ higher!

    Why doesn’t Pomona release GPA data about accepted students anymore? Is it because their admissions doesn’t weight GPA heavily?

    From what I remember hearing during admissions presentations at Pomona and a bunch of similar colleges, there are just too many ways that high schools scale and weigh grades to bother to standardize them (I think that something like 13 of the USNWR top 15 LACs - along with Yale, Brown, MIT, Duke, etc. - don't release standardized GPAs). The rigor of your classes and how you do in them are still among the most important things that all of these colleges consider, but they do that within the context of each applicant's high school situation.
