ADMISSION STATISTICS AT 150+ U.S. COLLEGES

The following is a sampling of admission statistics at well-known colleges. The information in this table is written for the high school graduating class of 2022.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have extended their test optional policies to give students the choice of submitting or not submitting standardized testing scores as part of their applications. If scores are sent, most colleges will consider the scores. Schools that are test blind do not consider standardized testing scores even if scores are sent.

Colleges that accept self-reporting of scores do not require official score reports from the testing agencies be sent until after the student is admitted in order to verify their self-reported scores.

College testing requirements vary and are constantly shifting. Please be sure to check college websites for pandemic updates and specific requirements.

A few things to note:

• College selectivity is often measured by the school’s Acceptance Rate. (acceptance rate = # of accepted candidates/# of candidate applicants)

Yield is a measure of the school’s ability to enroll its accepted candidates. While some of the most selective schools, notably Harvard and Yale, yield a very high percentage of candidates, many competitive schools enroll fewer than half of their admitted candidates. (yield = # of enrolled candidates/# of accepted candidates)

• SAT and ACT submission percentages indicate the percentage of applicants sending SAT scores versus ACT scores to a particular institution.

• Visit our Glossary of Terms for more college admission jargon.
