University of Pennsylvania Class of 2024 Admissions Statistics

UPenn received fewer applications this year than last year.

All offers of admission to applicants to the University of Pennsylvania’s 268th class have now been extended. In all, between the Early Decision and Regular Decision admissions rounds, 3,404 students have earned admission to the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based institution (1,269 in the ED round, 2,135 in the RD round). The total applicant pool for the Class of 2024 stood at 42,205 students. To put these figures in perspective, 44,960 students applied for admission to UPenn’s Class of 2023 and 44,482 students applied to the Class of 2022. But the applicant pool is up from the Class of 2021 when 40,413 students applied. So while applications were down this year at UPenn, it’s not as though the mark was off significantly. In any case, what is the breakdown of UPenn’s incoming class, you ask?

Breakdown of Admits to UPenn’s Class of 2024

As Ron Ozio reports for Penn Today in a piece entitled “Class of 2024 Regular Decision admissions results,” “The admitted students come from 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, with the highest concentration from Pennsylvania, California, New York, New Jersey, Florida, and Texas. One hundred sixty-eight of the students reside in Philadelphia. In addition, 14% of the admitted students are international students based on their citizenship, coming from 98 countries, ranging from Albania to Zimbabwe. Fifty-three percent are female, and 53% are U.S. citizens or permanent residents who self-identify as members of minority groups. Fifteen percent are first-generation college students, and 13% had a parent or grandparent attend Penn in prior generations. Twenty percent are estimated to qualify for federal Pell Grants. The admitted students have pursued a most demanding secondary school curriculum within broad educational settings at more than 2,000 high schools. Their middle 50% testing ranges are 1460-1560 on the SAT and 33-35 on the ACT.”

We Anticipate UPenn Will Reach Deeper Into Their Waitlist This Year

Congratulations to all students who earned admission to the University of Pennsylvania’s Class of 2024! And if you happened to be waitlisted, we do believe many highly selective colleges — including UPenn — will reach deeper into their waitlists this year due to all the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.
