Class of 2023 Early Admission RatesHere are Some of the First Admission Rates for the Class of 2025

While the regular school year is finishing out virtually for many students in response to the coronavirus, it’s still business as usual when it comes to admissions decisions, with colleges releasing their admissions decisions and results through the rest of March.

This has been an usual year for college admissions in light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, with continued SAT/ACT interruptions, test-optional admissions, colleges closed for formal and informal visits, increasing application numbers, and more students applying to even more colleges than ever before. All of this has led to an even more competitive year at the most selective colleges in the US, while other schools plan to admit more students than ever before in order to manage enrollment numbers.

UChicago and MIT were some one of the first schools to release decisions this March. It was another competitive year at MIT, with 4% of applicants admitted to the class of 2025, significantly lower than the 7.2% admit rate last year.

Class of 2025 Application Numbers

As far as application numbers go, many schools saw applications skyrocket as more students chose to apply to a wider range of schools in light of widespread test-optional admissions policies. Overall the Common Application saw an 11% increase in submitted applications over last year, but only a 2% increase in unique applicants.

The most competitive colleges and universities saw incredible increases in application numbers, with increases of almost 42% at Harvard, 66% at MIT, 103% at Colgate, and 35% at Boston College, just to name a few.
