Dartmouth Received about 20,500 Applications for Class of 2019

Nearly 20,500 students have applied for acceptance to the Class of 2019, representing a more than six percent increase in applications over last year, according to Dartmouth Now. This follows a more than 10 percent increase in the number of students who applied to Dartmouth through the early decision program.

Last year, the College saw a 14 percent decrease in applications, when 19,235 students applied for the Class of 2018. While this year’s admissions statistics represent an increase from last year, the total number of applicants is lower than the numbers received in 2011, 2012 and 2013, when application numbers were 22,385, 23,110 and 22,416, respectively.

In December, Dartmouth admitted 483 students to the Class of 2019 from a pool of 1,859 early decision applicants for an early acceptance rate of nearly 26 percent. The Office of Admissions expects that students admitted early decision will comprise about 41 percent of the Class of 2019.

Princeton has received a total of 26,993 applications for admission to the Class of 2019, the second largest in its history. Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Harvard University, Princeton University, the University of Pennsylvania and Yale University have yet to release their application numbers.

Admissions decisions will be released on March 31, according to Dartmouth Now.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
