Admission Stats for the Class of 2022

Admission Stats for the Class of 2022

Many of the most highly selective colleges in the U.S. released their total admission statistics for the Class of 2022.  As always, significantly more students applied than were accepted. And this year, it was harder than ever to get in.

What this also means is that more students were waitlisted.  If you are on a waitlist, contact your college advisor at International College Counselors for next steps on what to do.   If you are not a client, visit Editthework.com for help writing a waitlist letter.  At Cornell University for example, 6,684 students have a place on the waitlist as of March 28, 2018.

Below is a chart of some of the Class of 2022 acceptance data released by a sample of different highly selective schools.
