The admissions cycle for the Wellesley College Class of 2023 is complete. In all, 6,488 students applied for admission to the women’s college this year. It marked the second largest pool in the school’s history. Of these students, 20% earned admission. As our readers may remember, 6,670 students applied to Wellesley last year — and that figure set a benchmark for the Seven Sisters college. So what’s the breakdown of this year’s admits to the Wellesley, Massachusetts-based school, you ask? We know it’s kept you up at night. Well, wonder no more.
Breakdown of the Wellesley Class of 2023 Admits
As Wellesley reports in a press release about their Class of 2023, “They hail from 990 high schools in 49 states plus the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico as well as 54 countries outside the United States. Fifty-seven percent are domestic students of color, identifying as African-American, Asian-American, Latina or Hispanic, Native American, or multiracial. Seventeen percent will be the first generation in their families to attend a four-year college. Eleven percent are international citizens. Their average SAT score is 1438 and their average ACT score is 32. Of the students attending high schools that rank, 84 percent are ranked in the top 10 percent of their graduating classes.”
Congratulations to all students who earned admission to Wellesley’s Class of 2023!
