The statistics are in for the Stanford Early Action Class of 2020 and we’ve got this data for our readers. In all, 745 students earned admission to The Farm this Early Action cycle. 7,822 students submitted applications to Stanford this Early Action cycle so that means the acceptance rate stands at 9.5%. It marked the largest Early pool in the university’s history and from this pool, 701 still have a shot at getting in as their admission was deferred to the Regular Decision round (although at most highly selective colleges, the odds of getting in after being deferred are around 10%).
An article by Sarah Wishingrad for “The Stanford Daily” reports on Stanford’s Early Action Class of 2020. In it, Wishingrad writes, “This year’s early acceptance rate was lower than last year’s, which was 10.2 percent. For the Class of 2019, Stanford accepted 743 and deferred 562 students out of a pool of 7,297 early applicants…The 745 early admits come from 48 states and 34 countries, according to Richard Shaw, dean of admission and financial aid. Over 80 percent of the students have a high school grade point average of 4.0 or above.”
Stanford is expecting about 35,000 students to submit applications in the Regular Decision round. That’s quite a lot of applicants! Anyhow, congratulations to our students at Ivy Coach who earned admission to Stanford University to be members of the Class of 2020 this Early Action admissions cycle. We’re so very excited for you!
