December 30, 2019 1:22 pm Class of 2024 Early Admissions Rates
By Admissions Expert, Dr. Lowe
The results are out for the college class of 2024 for several Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities. What we are discovering from parents who are calling us as to what happened is that students (and their parents) who believed that just a high GPA, top SAT scores, high grades and a manufactured application and personal statement would work have now discovered that it’s not all about that!
Even though the number of early applicants has decreased in some schools (Harvard, Duke and UPenn, to date), it’s still hypercompetitive to gain acceptance into these schools.
It has been a wonderfully satisfying early action/early decision season. This year, 100% of our students who applied early decision/action to their top-choice schools, including Harvard, Brown, Yale, UPenn, Columbia and Dartmouth, were accepted!
How do we achieve our successful outcomes? We work continually to know and understand our clients; we utilize this knowledge and couple it with our specialized awareness of how to make them stand out; we understand the changing admissions landscape better than high school guidance counselors, private school college counselors, and many independent educational consultants; and we continually visit schools to learn about their admissions policies and missions, which, in today’s world, has seemingly become a continuously evolving landscape. Most importantly – our admissions strategies work!
Here is a list of the Class of 2024 Early Action/Decision Acceptance Rates and the number of accepted applicants at several schools (We will have additional rates as more information becomes available):
- Harvard – 13.9%
- Yale – 13.8%
- Princeton – TBA
- Brown – 17.5%
- Dartmouth – TBA
- UPenn – 19.7%
- Cornell – 23.8%
- MIT – TBA
- Duke – 20.6%
- Johns Hopkins – TBA
