Dartmouth Admitted 578 ED Students to Class of 2027

 The 3,009 students who submitted early decision applications represent a 14% increase from last year, the College’s third record pool in the last five early admission cycles. Over the past three years, Dartmouth’s early decision pool has increased by 45%.

“The growth in our early applicant pool paired with its clear depth has been remarkable for my admissions colleagues and me to witness,” Coffin says.

Dartmouth extended acceptances to 578 early decision applicants. Earlier this month, an additional 47 students matched with Dartmouth via QuestBridge, a national access program that introduces high-achieving students from low-income backgrounds to many of the leading institutions of higher education. The match cohort was drawn from a pool of 1,260 candidates.

The initial offers of admission were extended to students from 47 states, as well as Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, and from 43 countries in addition to the United States. Of those who are American citizens, 41% are people of color, a record high for the early rounds, and 15% are in the first generation in their families to attend college. Fourteen percent are the children of Dartmouth alumni.

“The sustained growth of our early pool reflects the continued expansion of Dartmouth’s footprint around the world,” Coffin says. “Within that pool, we’re seeing some extraordinarily accomplished students who are strikingly good fits for our academic program and community.”
