Last Year’s Early Decision and Early Action Acceptance Rates

Dec 10, 2021

Class of 2025 Early Acceptance Rates and Dates

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the admissions landscape for Ivy League schools has seen drastic changes, both in terms of application requirements and number of applicants. Every school saw a huge jump in the number of applicants – for example, Harvard saw a 57% increase in the number of applicants for its 2020 Early Action cycle as compared to 2019, making 2020 the most selective year for admissions by far. While we expect that these schools will release their decisions by mid-December, we cannot predict this year’s acceptance rates. Nonetheless, we’ve listed last year’s acceptance rates for your reference.
