Class of 2022 Admission Rates
As Colleges Begin Releasing Admission Decisions, MIT Is One of the First With 6.7% Acceptance Rate
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%.
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.
