Review of Ivy League Plus Stanford and MIT Class of 2012 — Entering Fall 2008

▲Brown University The Class of 2012

◆BROWN

Brown University admitted 2,742 students - 555 of them through early decision. A total of 20,604 applications were read for regular and early decision admissions slots, an 8 percent increase over last year's pool of 19,059. The University set a record low admission rate of 13.3 percent, admitting 2,187 applicants through regular decision.


◆COLUMBIA

Columbia admitted 2,669 students out of 22,579 applications for a combined admit rate of 10 percent. Columbia College received a total of 19,116 applications, a 5.7 percent increase from last year's numbers, and admitted only 1,660. The overall admit rate of 8.7 percent is the lowest ever in the College's history. The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science experienced a similar surge in the number of applications received, admitting 609 students out of a pool of 3,463, for an admit rate of 17.6 percent.

This year, early decision admits accounted for 27.4 percent of CC's incoming class of 2012, and for 23.3 percent of SEAS' incoming class.

◆CORNELL

According to its Office of Admissions and Enrollment, Cornell has received an all-time high of 33,011 applications for freshman admission, for the Class of 2012. The record number of applicants represents a 9 percent increase over last year and a 17 percent increase over the past two years -- which also were record years. The overall admit rate reported by Cornell is 20.4 percent, slightly down from last year's admit rate of 20.5 percent. A total of 3,432 students were offered a place on the waitlist and 19,305 students were denied admission.

The statistics reported by Cornell, however, fail to account for about 6 to 7 percent of applicants who do not complete the process and another 3 to 4 percent who withdraw before the notification date. In spite the claim that is typical for most institutions of higher education, many institutions that use the Common Application but require additional material have been forced to exclude incomplete applications.


◆DARTMOUTH

Dartmouth extended offers of admission to 2,190 applicants for its Class of 2012, from a pool of 16,536 - the largest of number of applicants in the College's history and 2,361 more than applied for last year's entering class -- an increase of more than 16.6 percent.

The admissions rate was tighter this year at 13.2 percent, down by two percent from the 2011 class rate. Approximately 1,080-1,090 of those admitted are expected to matriculate at Dartmouth next fall.


◆HARVARD

Harvard accepted a record low 7.1 percent of applicants to the Class of 2012. 1,948 high school seniors—about 100 fewer than last year— were selected from a pool of 27,462 applicants. The pool reflected an 18-percent increase from 22,955 last year when about 9 percent were admitted.


◆PENN

Penn admitted a total of 3,769 of 22,922 applications. Last year, 22,646 students applied and 3,628 were accepted - a rate of 16 percent. In contrast to the other Ivy League schools, Penn's overall acceptance rate increased to 16.4 percent for the class of 2012. Penn is the only Ivy League school thus far that has not reported a record-low acceptance rate.

The number of regular decision applicants accepted also increased, from 2,450 to 2,622. The regular-decision acceptance rate was 13.9 percent this year, up from 11 percent last year. The number of international students accepted increased to 471 for the class of 2012. The year before, the University accepted 454.


◆PRINCETON

Princeton University has admitted a record-low 9.25 percent of the 21,369 applicants who sought admission to the Class of 2012. Only 1,976 members of the largest applicant pool in history were offered admission in the first admissions cycle without early-decision applications.

The target size for the new class is around 1,245 students, making it roughly equal in size to the Class of 2011. The acceptance rate for that class was 9.5 percent. The waitlist has typically been as large as 1,200 students, but this year it is slightly larger in anticipation of a potential change in yield under the new process.


◆MIT

MIT admitted 1,554 students of 13,396 applicants, or a record-low 11.6 percent. There was an overall 8 percent increase in the number of applications from 12,443 last year.

To account for this increased uncertainty, around 700 students, an increase of about a hundred from last year, were waitlisted. The target size for the class of 2012 is 1,040, slightly below the 1,069 enrolled in the class of 2011.


◆STANFORD

Stanford admitted 2400 students out of 25,298 applicants for admission to the Class of 2012. Of this estimated total, 738 were admitted in December through the university's restrictive early action program. The projected overall admission rate is 9.7%, pending waitlist action and "summer melt."

For the Class of 2011, 2,465 were admitted for the Class of 2010, 2,430 were admitted; for the Class of 2009, 2,412 were admitted.


◆YALE

Yale accepted 1,892 students out of the 22,813 total early and regular applicants for the class of 2012. Yale accepted 1,007 applicants out of the 17,925 who applied regular decision in January, for a regular decision admit rate of 5.6 percent. An additional 1,052 students were offered positions on the waitlist, up 22.5 percent from last year's waitlist of 859. Out of the 4,888 students who applied early action to Yale in November, 885 were accepted for an 18.1 percent acceptance rate. The acceptance rate will increase slightly if students are accepted from the waitlist.

The total number of applications for Yale's class of 2012 increased 18 percent over last year's total of 19,323 applications. Early applications this year rose a whopping 36 percent over last year's total.
