It’s that time of year again, when anxious students nationwide start to hear back from colleges — at least the ones they applied early to. Looking at these stats about the 526 students who were accepted for early admission to Johns’ Hopkins Class of 2018, all I can say is I’m impressed–and I’m sure glad I don’t have to apply to college again.

+80 percent of those admitted were in the top 10 percent of their high school class.

+The middle 50th percentile of students’ SAT scores were between 1380 and 1510 (reading and math)

+1,595 students applied — up 11 percent from last year.

+This year’s early decision acceptance rate was 33 percent, slightly down from last year’s rate of 37 percent. In other words, Hopkins is continuing to get more competitive.

+Last year’s overall acceptance rate was 17 percent. Yep, that means that students who apply early have almost twice as good a chance of getting in…

+The 526 admitted students will make up about 40 percent of the eventual incoming class.

  1. The comment “that means that students who apply early have almost twice as good a chance of getting in” is misleading inasmuch as the ED pool includes all recruited athletes. Take that group out (bet it could be as many as 100-150 of the count).
