Here’s a look at some of the first admission rates and application numbers from the class of 2022.

It’s looking like it will be another competitive admissions season for the class of 2022, with acceptance rates for the incoming freshman class remaining low and even dropping slightly from the 2016-17, with the release of MIT’s admission rate of 6.7%.

Admission Rates

MIT was one of the first highly selective colleges to release admission decisions this year, notifying students of their application decision on Pi Day. Of the 21,706 students who applied to MIT’s class of 2022, only 1,464 were accepted – just 6.7%. In 2017, MIT admitted a slightly higher percentage of applicants, with an admit rate of 7.1% for the class of 2021.


Application Numbers

Once again, many colleges reported a record-high number of applications for the class of 2022.

This year, NYU reported that 75,307 students applied for admission to the class of 2022 – “the most applicants received by any private university in the United States,” according to the university.

Brown University received a record-high number of applications to the class of 2022, with 35,368 students applying – an 8% increase over the year before. Yale University also reported a record-setting applicant pool, with 35,305 students applying to the class of 2022.
