Georgetown University Class of 2028 Early Action Admission Statistics

In mid-December, Georgetown University released Early Action decisions for the Class of 2028. In all, 860 students earned admission to the Jesuit institution. These students were accepted from a pool of approximately 8,600 applicants, marking a 10% EA admission rate for the 2023-2024 cycle. This year's Early Action cycle marked one of the strongest in Georgetown's storied history.
