College Admissions Statistics Class of 2022

The acceptance rates are scary and they would become worse and worse

@bronze2 Updates:

According to an email sent to alumni interviewers Penn received over 7500 ED apps, not 7074.

Columbia received 4,085 apps, one less app than last year. http://www.columbiaspectator.com/news/2017/12/14/cc-seas-receive-one-less-early-decision-application-than-last-year-breaking-upward-trend/

That is not many students accepted. Where do they list how many have been waitlisted?

You mean how many deferred? I’ll see if I can track it down. But there’s another thread, so I’ll post it there if I find it.

Yale College has offered admission to 842 applicants for the class of 2022 through its early action program. Dean of Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid Jeremiah Quinlan also reported that 55% of the 5,733 students who applied through early action were deferred for reconsideration in the spring, 29% were denied admission, and 2% were withdrawn or incomplete.

I think @Mathlete811 was looking for deferral #s on Princeton, but I appreciate the info on Yale.

Here is the link to the article about Yale SCEA admissions.

Hey @Penn95, I started a thread on this year’s stats. Can we get a moderator to merge the threads into one thread and pin it? Would be helpful for me.

Brown:

"The University admitted 21 percent of its early decision applicants to the class of 2022, selecting 738 students from the largest early decision applicant pool in the University’s history, wrote Dean of Admission Logan Powell in an email to The Herald. The University saw almost a 10 percent increase in the size of its application pool from last year with 3502 applications in comparison to 3186 for the class of 2021, Powell wrote.

Following @spayurpets’s original format:

Maybe we can list the deferral rate, as well.

I have info on MIT from several non-linked sources. They make it clear that applying early isn’t advantageous.

MIT EA 664 out of 9557 (6.9%) (185 withdrew) 6210 deferred to RD (apx. 65%); rejected 2498.

Thanks @Penn95. I’d recommend using the value from the linked Daily Pennsylvanian article unless/until it is officially updated.

Georgetown EA is 12%

Princeton 14.7% SCEA
