Georgetown University Class of 2026 Admissions Statistics

Applications were down at Georgetown this year (photo credit: Patrickneil).

After a record Early Action cycle at Georgetown University for the Class of 2026, the school admitted 12% of overall applicants. Last year, this same figure stood at 11.7%. In all, between Early Action and Regular Decision, 26,670 students applied to Georgetown’s Class of 2026 during a year in which the school, unlike many elite peer universities, required the submission of an SAT or ACT. Of these students, 3,229 earned admission. Compared to last year, the numbers were slightly down. For the Class of 2025, a total of 27,650 students applied and 3,226 earned admission. So about the same number of students were admitted this year as compared to last year but there were a little less than a thousand fewer applicants. Notice how no Georgetown press release reads, “Georgetown Receives 1,000 Fewer Applications.” No, the headlines instead focus on the school’s 12% overall admission rate. But of course.

As Laetitia Haddad reports for The Hoya in a piece entitled “Georgetown Admits 12% of Regular Decision Applicants for Class of 2026,” “Charles Deacon (CAS ’64, GRD ’69), dean of undergraduate admissions, said the COVID-19 pandemic influenced applicants’ decisions regarding their course of study. ’Within our applicant pool, there is a notable shift toward business and undecided in the College,’ Deacon wrote to The Hoya. ’This is not surprising as students are likely hedging their options in this uncertain environment.’ Melissa Costanzi, senior associate director in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, said that 48% of admitted students identified as Black, Hispanic, Latinx, Asian, Native American, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, while 11% of applicants are first-generation prospective college students. The university admitted 3,229 students, including international students representing 98 different countries and over 500 dual citizens.”

Congratulations to all of Ivy Coach’s students who earned admission to the Georgetown University Class of 2026! Go Hoyas!
