Dartmouth Acceptance Rate and Application Trends
So what are the trend lines with Dartmouth’s admissions statistics over the last two decades?
- Applications are skyrocketing — up 143.28% over the previous 21 admissions cycles. In fact, in all but six of the last 21 years, applications to Dartmouth have gone up.
- Total offers of admission have decreased markedly over this span. For the Class of 2007, 2,155 students were offered admission, while only 1,798 students earned a spot in the Class of 2027. The reason? Dartmouth’s yield has improved over time; thus, the school can admit fewer students than in the past.
- Meanwhile, the overall admission rate for Dartmouth has steadily decreased — from 18.18% for the Class of 2007 to 6.23% for the Class of 2027. Indeed, Dartmouth’s overall admission rate has dropped in all but five of the last 21 years.

Dartmouth is an awesome and fun school I hear but don’t they accept a higher percentage of ED students than any other Ivy to keep their overall acceptance rate low?
