A grand total of 1,881 students earned admission to Dartmouth College’s Class of 2024, a figure that includes both Early Decision and Regular Decision admits. This same figure stood at 1,876 last year for the Class of 2023, 1,925 for the Class of 2022, 2,092 for the Class of 2021, and 2,176 for the Class of 2020. Notice a trend? We do, we do! In all, between the Early Decision and Regular Decision rounds (526 students earned ED admission to Dartmouth’s Class of 2024 out of a pool of 2,069 applicants for an ED admit rate of 25.4%), Dartmouth admitted 8.8% of total applicants. This same figure stood at 7.9% for the Class of 2023, 8.7% for the Class of 2022, 10.4% for the Class of 2021, and 10.5% for the Class of 2020. So while it was not a record low admission rate this year at the College on the Hill, it was the third lowest admit rate in the school’s history. And just who earned admission to Dartmouth’s Class of 2024?
Breakdown of Admits to Dartmouth College’s Class of 2024
As Ioana Andrada Pantelimon reports for The Dartmouth in a piece entitled “College admits 8.8 percent of applicants to Class of 2024,” “International students comprise a record-high 14 percent of the accepted cohort, up from 12 percent for the Class of 2023…The cohort of admitted ’24s includes students from all 50 states. The highest number of accepted students hails from California, followed by New York, Massachusetts, Florida and then Texas, [Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Lee] Coffin said. Among international students, who represent 71 countries, a majority comes from the United Kingdom, followed by China, Canada, India and Turkey, according to Coffin. Average test scores for the Class of 2024 were 1501 for the SAT — tying last year’s record high — and 33 for the ACT, according to Coffin. He said the College expects approximately 27 percent of the accepted students to be valedictorians and salutatorians…While he noted that yield rates may be difficult to anticipate given the current global pandemic, Coffin stated that the College’s goal is to have an intake of 1,150 students for a 61 percent yield, as compared to last year’s intake of 1,193 students, a 64 percent yield.”
And for those students who received acceptance letters signed in pen in the mail, rest assured that admissions officers handled these letters with latex gloves in the age of the novel coronavirus pandemic. Congratulations to all students who earned admission to Dartmouth College’s Class of 2024! Go Big Green!
