Admissions statistics have been released for the Brown University Class of 2022. In all, 35,438 students applied to the Providence, Rhode Island-based university. This figure, the largest in the university’s storied history, includes both the Early Decision and Regular Decision pools. Of these students, 2,566 received offers of admission. 1,829 of these 2,566 students received offers of admission at the end of the Regular Decision cycle, while 738 students had earned admission back at the end of the Early Decision cycle. It’s not lost on us that the math doesn’t add up based on Brown’s press releases about their incoming Class of 2022 (it’s off by 1 student!) but, hey, we’re college admissions experts, not mathematicians. Anyhow, the overall admit rate for Brown’s Class of 2022 stood at 7.2%.

Breakdown of the Brown University Class of 2022

According to the Brown University press release about the Class of 2022, “Ninety-six percent of admitted students are in the top 10 percent of their high school classes. Forty-nine percent identify as students of color. Sixty-four percent of admitted students intend to apply for financial aid. Students have been admitted from 48 states. The top five states are California, New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Texas. Students from 76 nations are represented in the admitted class. The top five countries are China, India, the United Kingdom, Canada and Singapore. Admitted students come from 1,685 high schools. 60 percent attend public schools, 33 percent attend private schools and 7 percent attend parochial schools. The top 10 intended concentrations include: engineering, computer science, biology, political science, biochemistry and molecular biology, economics, BEO (business, entrepreneurship and organizations), international relations, neuroscience, and English.”

Note how students were admitted from 48 of the 50 states. As we’ve long expressed, colleges love to admit students from all 50 states in our union. So while we previously expressed that we’re college admissions experts rather than mathematicians, 48 is not 50. You can bet if two students from the missing states had halfway decent pulses, they’d have earned admission to Brown’s Class of 2022.

Congratulations to all students who earned admission to Brown University’s Class of 2022. Go Bears!
