Stanford yield rate may be highest ever for Class of 2014

Ahead of Shawn Abbott’s departure to New York University, the Stanford director of admission said about 72 to 73 percent of students admitted to Stanford this year have accepted their offers. 2,300 applicants were accepted during early and regular admission.

“It looks as though our yield this year will be our strongest ever,” Abbott wrote in an e-mail to The Daily.

Students who have accepted a spot on our waitlist and transfer students should be aware of these updates.

Stanford will be admitting a small number of students (20-30) from our freshman wait list later this month. Students will initially be notified by way of email and we will communicate with all students holding a space on our waitlist at that time. We are no longer considering any new materials (e.g. letters of recommendation), so students holding a space on the waitlist should refrain from submitting any such materials.

Transfer admission decisions will be mailed by way of email no later than May 15. We understand that transfer candidates often need to let their current college or university know of their fall enrollment plans, but we cannot provide admission decisions until May 15.
