Yale Accepts 675 Early Applicants to the Class of 2016

Yale admitted 675 of the 4,304 early applicants for admission to the class of 2016, marking a 15.7 percent admissions rate for early action candidates, according to admissions statistics released to alumni interviewers. Of the early applicant pool, 2,394 students have been deferred for regular decision and 1,180 were denied admission.
The 15.7 percent early acceptance rate marks an increase from last year's 14.5 percent early admission rate and the 13.9 percent acceptance rate for the class of 2014.

The breakdown:
  • Total applicants: 4,304
  • Number of applicants accepted: 675 (15.7 percent)
  • Number of applicants deferred: 2,394 (55.6 percent)
