NYU Class of 2024 Application Figures

NYU received a record number of applications to its Class of 2024, continuing a long admissions streak of increased applications year-over-year (photo credit: Diego Delso).

In a year in which some — though certainly not all — of our nation’s highly selective universities received fewer applications, applications rose at New York University. In all, over 85,000 students applied to New York University’s Class of 2024. It marks the thirteenth year in a row that the school has received more applications as compared to the year before. Of these over 85,000 applicants, over 15,000 of them applied through NYU’s binding Early Decision program. To put these figures in perspective, 84,481 students in all applied to NYU’s Class of 2023.

As Lisa Cochran and Emily Mason report for Washington Square News in a piece entitled “NYU Class of 2024 Applications Exceed 85,000,” “This marks the 13th year that NYU’s application numbers have surpassed those of the previous year. NYU’s number of international applicants also increased from last year, despite declining interest among international students to enroll in U.S. colleges. NYU President Andrew Hamilton commented on both the quality and quantity of NYU applicants. ’There are important lessons to be inferred from the remarkable growth in applications to NYU over the last dozen years: young people recognize NYU’s academic strengths across a wide range of disciplines,’ Hamilton said in a press release. ’They are eager for a rigorous liberal arts education, drawn to the vibrancy and diversity of urban settings, attracted by access to internships, and enthusiastic for global learning and research opportunities.’”

Congratulations to all of Ivy Coach’s students who applied Early Decision I to NYU — you all got in! Go Violets. Or Bobcats. Hey, it’s confusing!
