In the Regular Decision round, 2,027 students were offered admission to Brown University to be members of the Brown Class of 2021. It was a banner year for the Providence, Rhode Island-based university with a Regular Decision admit rate of 6.5% and an overall admit rate of 8.3% (including Early Decision). This 8.3% admit rate surpasses the previous record of 8.5% set for the Brown Class of 2019. And how many students were placed on the Brown waitlist so those students have an idea of what they’re up against? About 1,000.
As reports Sarah Wang for “The Brown Daily Herald” in a piece about the Brown University Class of 2021, “The admitted students come from all 50 states and 77 countries, with 12 percent of admitted students coming from outside of the United States. Fourteen percent of the admitted students are first generation students, a slightly higher percentage than last year, [Dean of Admission Logan] Powell said. Forty-seven percent of admitted students self-identify as students of color, the same percentage admitted for the class of 2020. Additionally, sixty-two percent of admitted students come from public high schools, an increase from last year, according to Powell. The University also admitted a slightly higher percentage of students who indicated they would apply for financial aid — 64 percent of students compared to 61 percent last year.”
Congratulations to our students at Ivy Coach who earned admission to Brown University to be members of the Brown Class of 2021! And we hope you’re looking forward to A Day on College Hill next week. It’s a great chance to figure out if Brown is for you. We hope you love it.
