Dartmouth College has notified Regular Decision applicants to the Class of 2022 of their admissions decisions. In all, 22,033 students applied to the College on the Hill in Hanover, New Hampshire. From this pool (the largest pool of applicants for Dartmouth in five years), 1,925 eared admission for an overall admit rate of 8.7% (a record low). As Daniel Webster argued before the highest court in our land in one of the most important Supreme Court cases in American history, ” It is, Sir, as I have said, a small college. And yet there are those who love it!” It sure is small and they sure do love it — do they ever.
Breakdown of Dartmouth College Class of 2022 Admits
As the senior staff of “The Dartmouth” reports in a piece about the incoming Dartmouth Class of 2022, “Of this year’s 1,925 admitted students, 97 percent are in the top 10 percent of their high school class, an increase of one percent from last year. Mean SAT and ACT scores are 1497 for SATs — a record high — and 33 for ACTs. The Class of 2022 is comprised of 15 percent first-generation college students, 11 percent foreign citizens and nine percent legacy students. Half of those admitted who are U.S. citizens and permanent residents are also students of color and 59 percent of the accepted class attend a public or charter school…Accepted students hail from all 50 U.S. states and from Washington, D.C., American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Mariana Islands. California, New York, Massachusetts, Florida and Texas have the most accepted students. Out of the 65 countries represented in the accepted class, the foreign countries with the most accepted students are Brazil, Canada, China, India and the United Kingdom.”
