The Ivy League Early admission figures are in and we’ve got some of them for our loyal readers. We’ve discussed the figures for a couple of Ivies for the current admissions cycle but now we’ve got some more data for you. This is for the Early Decision and Early Action round for the Class of 2019. So which Ivy League college had the biggest gains year-to-year? That would be Dartmouth College, which surged with over 10.3% more applications this Early Decision cycle. Congratulations to Dartmouth College on their record number of Early Decision applications, especially after an off year the year before.
The University of Pennsylvania set a record in the Early Decision round too this year. Penn scored 5,390 Early Decision applications, marking a 4.8% increase from last year’s applicant pool. Brown University secured 3,016 Early applications, down 2.4% from last year. Also down this year is Princeton University, which landed 3,830 Early applications. But the university’s only down less than a percent from last year so it’s not too shabby! Yale University is down 1.2% from the Class of 2018, having secured 4,693 applications this year.
Are you surprised that Early applications dropped at Yale, Brown, and Princeton? Are you surprised that Dartmouth saw the highest increase in Early applications year-to-year?
