The Middlebury College Class of 2022 Early Decision statistics are out and we’ve got them for our readers. In all, Middlebury received 650 Early Decision I applications. Of these 650 students, 326 earned admission — marking an admission rate of just over 50%. Middlebury has two rounds of its Early Decision program, encouraging as many students as possible to commit to attending the institution if they’re granted admission. Last year, for the Class of 2021, 343 students earned admission in the first round of Middlebury’s Early Decision program so admits are a bit down this year. 39 students who did not earn admission in the first round of Early Decision this year at Middlebury still have a shot of getting in later on this year in the Regular Decision round. The rest of the applicants were denied admission.
Breakdown of the Middlebury Class of 2022 Early Decision Admits
As reports Ben Dohan for “The Middlebury Campus” in a piece entitled “First in Class of 2022 Accepted in Early Decision Round,” “The final size of the combined classes of 2022 and 2022.5 is expected to total around 715 students. The 326 already accepted students make up about 45 percent of that total. Feb classes generally total around 100 people, which means that only about 25 percent of the class of 2022.5 has been admitted. Twenty-three percent of the admitted class consists of students of color, and 11 percent are the first person in their family to go to college. Diversity is down from the 28 percent of last years class that consisted of students of color. The accepted students are from 32 states plus Washington, D.C., and 20 countries. 29 international students are among the 326. Other than the United States, the most common countries that students come from are Canada, China, and the Philippines. The best represented state is New York, followed by Massachusetts, California, Connecticut, Illinois and Vermont.”
Congratulations to all students who earned admission to Middlebury College through the first round of Early Decision. And good luck to all Middlebury applicants who await word from the second round of Early Decision or Regular Decision!
