Tufts University has rendered its verdicts on all applicants to its Class of 2023. In all, between the Early Decision I, Early Decision II, and Regular Decision rounds, 22,766 students applied for admission to the Medford, Massachusetts-based institution. We previously reported on Tufts’ record-breaking applicant pool for the Class of 2023. As it turns out, 14.6% of these applicants earned admission to Tufts: the same figure as last year (although the applicant pool was 5.8% larger than for the Class of 2022). So what’s the breakdown of the admitted students to Tufts, you ask? Wonder no more!
Breakdown of Tufts’ Class of 2023 Admits
As reports Helene Ragovin for “Tufts Now” in a piece entitled “Selective Undergraduate Admissions – Again,” “Of the students accepted under regular decision, women make up more than half of the total. The accepted students come from across the country—forty-nine states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico—with Massachusetts, New York, and California topping the list. They also come from around the world, with 9.5 percent citizens of other countries. International students come from sixty-four countries, with the most from China, South Korea, Canada, India, Brazil, and Turkey. The mean SAT scores are 751 in math and 726 in evidence-based reading and writing—the section formerly known as the critical reading test…The mean ACT score is 33.5, up from 32.9 last year. Just shy of 60 percent attended public high schools, and 12 percent are the first in their family to go to college, compared to 11 percent last year…Some 20.5 percent of the admitted domestic students identify as Asian American. Twelve percent identify as Hispanic; 6.5 percent identify as African American, and 7 percent identify as two or more races.”
In future press releases about Tufts’ admitted students, it would be nice for the university to share the percentage of admits who will be the first in their families to attend college. It would also be nice to see how many veterans of America’s military earned admission. Here’s hoping next year’s description about the Class of 2024 will include these important data points! Anyhow, congratulations to all students who earned admission to Tufts’ Class of 2023. Go Jumbos!
