Stanford's Preliminary Yield for Class of 2018 is 78.9%

The Office of Undergraduate Admission at Stanford reported on Monday that 78.9 percent of admitted students had accepted their offer of admission to Stanford to join the Class of 2018. This represents a 2.9 percent jump from the 76.7 percent yield for the Class of 2017 and the highest yield of enrolled students in Stanford’s history.
This means that roughly 1,690 students have enrolled to join the Class of 2018 out of the 2,138 students who were admitted.
These numbers are still preliminary, and are subject to change until the final class statistics are presented in September, according to Colleen Lim M.A. ’80, associate director of undergraduate admission.
“Any way you look at it, the Class of 2018 is extraordinary,” Lim said. “We anticipated that our overall yield would increase due to Stanford’s outstanding reputation and … the 8.5 percent increase in applications, but we were very pleased with these amazing results.”
Lim noted that the incoming class has a 50/50 split of male and female matriculants and represents students from all 50 U.S. states and 57 other countries.

Stanford is killing it lately. Especially when you consider that Harvard admitted 992/2023 and Stanford admitted 748/2138 early, meaning that Harvard is taking more advantage of the higher yields from early admits.

How about the 100+ athletic "scholarship" admits, who get free rides and have signed binding "letters of intent" to enroll? The Ivies don't give out athletic "scholarships" at all, while Stanford spends more on them than any other college or university in America.

Gosh, Stanford's Yield/Admits ratio is shooting through the roof now...leaving the rest of the hypsm and other ivy pack in the dust.

Nearly 40% of the Stanford student body comes from California, where it essentially has no competition among private colleges, and benefits from extreme overcrowding in the state college and university system. This situation is essentially the opposite of that facing the top eastern colleges, which have a far more competitive situation.

NYC, you sound like a jealous Harvard student. You try to put down Stanford's amazing admissions stats on every message board. I feel sorry for you. The fact is Harvard is losing its advantage and no amount of your attempts to distract will change that.

BTW, NYCFan, your last pathetic post is completely false. To say there is no academic competition in California is simply stupid. I am not going to waste time listing the top level universities in Cali.
