The Dartmouth College Admissions Office has announced that 465 students were admitted to the College on the Hill through Early Decision. The 465 incoming students mark an increase of 21 students as only 444 students were admitted via Early Decision for the Dartmouth Class of 2015. According to “The Dartmouth,” these 465 students will represent 40% of the incoming Dartmouth Class of 2016.
With 1,800 applications to Dartmouth this year in Early Decision, the university witnessed an increase in the applicant pool from the previous year (41 more students applied). The 41 student increase marks a 2.6% increase. If you’ll recall, some Ivy League colleges witnessed decreases in their Early applicant pools this fall (see Yale University Early Stats and UPenn Early Stats).
Is it interesting to you that with Harvard and Princeton reinstating Early policies this admissions cycle, some Ivy League colleges saw decreases in their applicant pool? Why do you think this wasn’t the case at Dartmouth College? Let us know your thoughts by posting below!
