Boston College Class of 2022 Early Action Figures

BC Class of 2022, Class of 2022 at Boston College, Early Action Stats at BC
BC anticipates ultimately accepting about 20% of students who were deferred in the Early Action cycle this year.

The Boston College Early Action figures are in for the Class of 2022. In all, 3,170 students earned admission to BC this Early Action cycle. These 3,170 students were admitted out of a pool of 10,360 applicants, marking a 31% Early Action acceptance rate. The pool was dramatically 15% larger than last year’s Early Action pool and the acceptance rate was 2% lower this year (down from 33% for the Early Action pool of BC’s Class of 2021). So it was a banner Early Action cycle indeed at Boston College for the Class of 2022.

Breakdown of BC’s Class of 2022 Early Action Admits

As reports Cole Dady for “The Heights” in a piece about BC’s Class of 2022, “Admitted students averaged a 33 on the ACT and a 1453 on the SAT, which the College Board updated with a new 1600-point scale and Evidence-Based Writing and Reading section two years ago. Last year’s Early Action admits averaged a 33 on the ACT and a 1425 on the SAT, representing a 28-point jump in the SAT score. Director of Undergraduate Admission John Mahoney believes that the increase in the SAT score reflects the process of adapting to the new test.”

Admitted students in the Early Action round, who will comprise about a third of Boston College’s overall Class of 2022 (BC’s yield rate is not traditionally very high), hail from 49 of the 50 states (you can bet that if a student had a pulse in the 50th state in our union, he or she likely would have earned admission to BC as colleges love to brag that they have students from all 50 states). Admits also hail from 37 nations. These data points compare to 46 states and 30 nations for BC’s Class of 2021. So what a difference a year can make!

Congratulations to all students who earned admission to Boston College! And for those students applying Regular Decision, BC’s figures are strong this Regular Decision cycle too. The school has received over 31,000 applications (including Early Action and Regular Decision applications). That marks a 9% bump from just last year. So a lower Regular Decision admit rate for BC’s Class of 2022 is likely on the horizon.
