The admissions statistics are in for the Cornell Class of 2019 and, surprise, surprise, we’ve got them for the loyal readers of Ivy Coach’s blog. In all, 41,907 students applied for admission to Cornell University to be members of the Big Red Class of 2019 (including Early Decision and Regular Decision applicants). Last year, that same figure stood at 43,041, as you’ll note in our comprehensive Ivy League Admissions Statistics. For the Class of 2019, 14.9% of students earned admission to the university. How does this figure compare to last year’s figure? Last year’s figure stood at 14%. This all means that 6.234 students were offered slots at Cornell this year, as compared to 6,014 for the Class of 2018.
According to an article by Annie Bui on the Cornell Class of 2019 in “The Cornell Daily Sun,” “Additionally, Cornell offered 3,589 students a place on the waitlist for the Class of 2019, compared to 3,133 for the Class of 2018, according to a University press release. 29,661 applicants were denied admission to the University, compared to 31,235 from last year. Echoing the geographic diversity of previous years, those who were admitted represent all 50 U.S. states, Washington D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the University said. Seventy-nine countries outside of the United States are also represented within this year’s admitted pool.”
And while the median SAT math score stayed the same this year as compared to previous years, as according to “The Cornell Daily Sun,” the median score on the critical reading section of the SAT went up a bit.
