Review of Class of 2019 — Entering Fall 2015

Brown University
The University offered admission to 8.5 percent of its applicants to the class of 2019, breaking last year’s record-low acceptance rate of 8.6 percent. The rate of admission for the ED round stood at just above 20 percent. Out of the 30,397 students who applied — the second largest pool in University history — 2,580 students were admitted. The 1,970 students accepted through the regular decision process will join the 617 students admitted in December. In 2014, Brown University admitted 2,619 students to the Class of 2018, with 583 through early decision. 30,342 applications were received for regular and early decision admissions slots. The rates of acceptance were 8.61 percent for the combined rounds and 18.88 percent for the Early Decision round only.

Columbia University
For the Class of 2019, Columbia accepted 2,228 from 36,250 applications. The acceptance rate of 6.15 percent was slightly lower than the previous 6.95 percent when Columbia admitted 2,291 from 32,952 applications. In this admission cycle, Columbia received 3,373 early decision applications and accepted about 600 students for an admission rate just below 18 percent.

Cornell University
According to its Office of Admissions and Enrollment, Cornell received 41,907 applications for admission to the Class of 2019, the second highest applicant pool in university history. A total of 6,234 applicants were admitted, and 3,590 were offered a place on a wait list. The overall admit rate reported by Cornell is 14.88 percent, slightly up from last year’s admit rate of 14 percent. Cornell admitted about 1,200 Early Decision applicants. In 2014, Cornell received an all-time high of 43,041 applications for freshman admission to the Class of 2018. The overall admit rate reported by Cornell was 14 percent as the school admitted 6,019 applicants with 4,694 regular decision applicants and 1,325 Early Decision applicants.

Dartmouth College
The College offered admission to the Class of 2019 to 2,120 students for an overall acceptance rate of 10.34 percent, down from last year’s 11.5 percent acceptance rate when Dartmouth College extended offers of admission to 2,220 applicants for its Class of 2018. The total number of accepted students includes the 483 admitted through the early decision process in December. The overall applicant pool increased by more than six percent from last year to 20,505 applicants, following a 14 percent decrease from the year before.

Harvard University
Harvard accepted a record-low 5.3 percent of applicants to its Class of 2019. This year, Harvard received a total of 37,305 applications compared to 34,295 for the Class of 2018 when the school admitted 2,023 students resulting in an overall admissions rate of 5.9 percent. With only 1,990 admitted students, the rate of admission dropped to 5.3 percent for the combined SCEA and regular decision. In the early round, Harvard University received 5,919 applications and accepted 977, for an admit rate of 16.51% which represents a decrease from the 21.14% of 2018. The SCEA admit rate is substantially higher than regular decision acceptance rate of below 4 percent, and below 3 percent if factoring the 4,292 students who were deferred. About 81 percent of students admitted to the College’s Class of 2019 plan to matriculate to Harvard, roughly even with the yield rates of the past two years. The Office of Admissions and Financial Aid also expects to admit about 60 to 70 applicants from the waitlist in the coming weeks, marking a slight uptick from the 20 students they intended to accept from the waitlist at this time last year.

MIT
MIT admitted 1,467 students out of 18,306 applicants for the Class of 2019 for an acceptance rate of 8.01 percent. In its early round, MIT admitted 625 students out of 6,519 applications, the lowest rate of acceptance in an early round among its peer group composed of the Ivy League and Stanford. In 2014, MIT admitted 1,419 students out of 18,357 applicants for the Class of 2018, for an acceptance rate of 7.73 percent. MIT admitted 1,548 students out of 18,989 applicants for the Class of 2017.

Princeton University
The University has offered admission to 1,908 students, or 6.99 percent, of the 27,290 applicants for the Class of 2019. In its most selective admission year, the University broke the record number of 27,189 set by the Class of 2015. Princeton University received 3,850 early action applications and accepted 767 applicants. Last year, for the Class of 2018, Princeton admitted 1,939 out of 26,641 applicants for an admission rate of 7.3 percent. After announcing the highest yield in the university’s history at 69.4%, Princeton adjusted its yield rate to 68.6 percent on May 15th, after 14 admitted students deferred their admission to the Class of 2020. Dean of Admission Janet Rapelye said she ultimately expects to admit 20 to 25 students from the wait list.

Stanford University
Stanford University has offered admission to 2,144 students. The Class of 2019 was selected from 42,487 candidates, the largest applicant pool in Stanford’s history, eclipsing last years’ unprecedented 42,167 applications. The figure, which includes 748 candidates admitted in December through Stanford’s Restrictive Early Action program, represents an admission rate of below 5.05 percent. This rate, the most competitive in the university’s history and the lowest in the nation for the third year reinforces Stanford’s position as the most selective research university. The early acceptance rate for the Class of 2019 was below 10.77 percent. Last year, Stanford admitted 2,138 students out of 42,167 applicants for admission to the Class of 2018 for an overall admission rate of 5.07%.

The University of Pennsylvania
Of 37,267 students who applied to Penn’s Class of 2019 in the early and regular rounds, 3,697 were admitted, leading to an overall acceptance rate of 9.9 percent. Last year’s overall acceptance rate was also 9.9 percent when Penn admitted a total of 3,551 students from 35,868 applications. Out of the total 3,697 admitted, 1,316 students were admitted through the early decision round. The admission rate for the ED round was slightly below 24 percent. As of May 1, 2015, 66 percent of students accepted to the Class of 2019 committed to attend Penn. Last year, the yield rate for the Class of 2018 was also 66 percent.

Yale University
Yale’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions accepted roughly 6.49 percent of the 30,237 students who applied to Yale. This represents a slight increase from last year’s rate of 6.26 percent. Although this year’s pool had 695 fewer applicants than last year, the University accepted 27 more students, offering admission to 1,962 students in total. The SCEA round accounted for 753 acceptances out of a pool of 4,693 applications. This marks the fourth consecutive year that Yale’s acceptance rate has remained in the 6 percent range, after hovering around 7.5 percent from 2009 to 2011. Last year, Yale accepted 1,935 students to its Class of 2018 from a record pool of 30,932.
