Yale Admiited 2169 Students to the Class of 2025

 Yale College admitted 2,169 students to the class of 2025 from its largest-ever pool of 46,905 applicants, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions announced on Tuesday.

The number of admitted students represents 4.62 percent of applicants for both early action and regular decision. This number is the lowest in recent years — down significantly from the 6.54 percent of students admitted to the class of 2024, 5.91 percent of students admitted to the class of 2023 and 6.31 percent of students admitted to the class of 2022. The record-breaking applicant pool represents a 33 percent increase from the 35,220 students who applied during the 2019-20 admissions cycle.

Students admitted to the class of 2025 represent all 50 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands and 72 countries. Their admission marks the culmination of an application cycle that took place entirely during the COVID-19 pandemic, featuring a heavy reliance on virtual outreach and Yale’s first-ever test-optional admissions cycle.

“The young people we met through the application process have experienced an unbelievable amount of change, disruption, and hardship this past year,” Dean of Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid Jeremiah Quinlan wrote in a press release. “But their resilience, leadership, service to their families and others, and commitment to their academic pursuits have been truly remarkable. Our newest students will bring an extraordinary range of experiences and identities, insights and ambitions, talents and intelligences to Yale.”
