2011 U.S. College Admission Rate

(Note: updated on April 9, 2011)

Starting on March 30, some U.S. media and university official websites started to publish the 2011 college admission rate. This was the same that we expected before because the number of applications received by many colleges have substantially increased this year. The admission rate this year has reached a record low number.

According to the admission rates published from the mainstream media New York Times (we also tried our best to verify its data from the universities' own official websites), Edugym analyzed its original data and made a new table of acceptance rates for 100 U.S. institutions below. From the chart, we can easily see that the number of applicants have increased substantially compared to last year; however, despite a small percentage of schools did reduce their admission number this year, in general, such change is still not significant. Therefore, the broadly record low college admission rates come from the increase of the application numbers.

Please view 2011 ED / EA Admission Results, which we posted recently, to compare with the data table below. Hopefully the information will be helpful to students who plan to apply for U.S. colleges next year. There will be more data added on the below table as more data are released either through media or colleges.
