Harvard Admissions Announcements (2015) for Class of 2019
The Ivy Leagues admissions announcments news has been released as we mentioned earlier today shortly after 5p EST in the United States.
And the most elite of elite colleges at least in terms of perception have announced their Class of 2019 Results:
Havard University accepts 1990 out of 37,307 applicants for their next prestigious class of freshmen.
The Top Ivy League University gets more competitive now boasting a 5.33% admissions rate.
However, this doesn’t compete with the 2019 Class of Stanford which tops the rate at 5.05% this year.
Regardless, it appears as if this year (2015) for the class of 2019 was a very competitive year with many of the other Ivy Leagues also announcing a more competitive rate. Columbia became more competitive this past year along with Princeton, Brown, and Dartmouth. The 3 other Ivy League Institutions (UPenn, Yale & Cornell) though either stayed the same or saw an increase in their rates.
What does it take to get into Harvard?
As we’ve detailed before, a very well rounded and a candiddate that embodies a “leadership profile” is what Harvard is looking for.
However, what sort of SAT Scores is Harvard Looking for?
