Cornell Admits Fewest Students Ever
Cornell accepted 10.3 percent out of 51,328 applicants for the incoming Class of 2022, breaking the all-time record for lowest admission rate and highest number of applicants. The accepted students, notified at 7 p.m. Wednesday, constitute the “most diverse class in university history,” according to the University.
Cornell admitted 5,288 applicants for the Class of 2022 while 6,684 students were placed on the waitlist.
Geographically, the prospective class represents all 50 U.S. states, in addition to Washington D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa. International students, who make up nearly nine percent of the admitted class, hail from 93 countries around the globe. Canada, China, India, South Korea, Singapore and the United Kingdom are the top countries represented, just as last year.
Accepted students have until May 1 to accept Cornell’s offer of admission. Before then, approximately 1,800 admitted students will visit the campus during Cornell Days between April 12 and April 23, the University estimates.
