Harvard University Releases Its Early Admit Data
All right applicants, I know you have been waiting for results. Harvard University Class of 2022 has released some data for its Early Action Admissions. Of the 6, 630 students who applied for Early Action admission to the university this year, 964 got in. This translates into a 14.5% Early Action admission rate for Harvard, precisely the same Early Action admission rate as for last year’s Harvard Class of 2021 EA pool. For the Class of 2021, 6, 473 students applied for Early Action admission, 938 students got admitted.
13.9% of admitted students to Harvard’s Class of 2022 are African American (up 1.3% from this past Early Action cycle). Latinos comprise 9.8% of incoming EA admitted students (up 1% from last year). 1.8% of incoming students are Native American (up 0.7% from last year). And the number that has caused a great deal of controversy – Asian Americans comprise 24.2% of admitted students (up 2.5% from last year’s 21.7% figure).
10.6% of admits to the Harvard Class of 2022 will be the first in their families to attend college (up 1.9% from last year). Almost 58% applied for Financial Aid as compared to 57% for last year’s EA class. Taking everything into account, looks like Harvard made a concerted effort to admit a more diverse and inclusive class. Take a look at Marina Bolotnikova‘s article in Harvard Magazine for more information.
