Admissions decisions have been sent out by Cornell University for all applicants to its Class of 2023. In total, between Early Decision and Regular Decision, over 49,000 students applied for admission to Cornell University’s Class of 2023. As our loyal readers know well, Cornell regularly receives the most applications among all the Ivy League schools by sheer virtue of the size of the school. This year, 5,183 students in total earned admission to Cornell’s incoming class. 1,395 of these students are bound to attend since they earned their admission in the Early Decision round, a cycle that boasted the lowest ED admit rate in the university’s history: 22.6%. The overall admit rate for Cornell’s Class of 2023 is 10.6%.
Breakdown of the Admits to Cornell’s Class of 2023
As reports Melanie Lefkowitz for “Cornell Chronicle” in a piece entitled “Accepted Class of 2023 students most diverse ever,” “Students accepted to Cornell’s Class of 2023 are unprecedentedly diverse, with 55 percent of those admitted identifying as students of color, including both underrepresented minorities and Asian-Americans – the highest percentage in university history.”
Lefkowtiz continues, “Admitted Class of 2023 applicants hail from all 50 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and 69 other countries. International students comprise 8 percent of the admitted class, with 95 nations represented based on citizenship. Aside from New York, the states most represented among the admitted students are California, Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Texas. Beyond the U.S., the top countries represented include Canada, China, India, the Republic of Korea, Singapore and the United Kingdom. Thirty-two percent of admitted students self-identify as underrepresented minorities, and 670 of those admitted will be first-generation college students.”
