The Ivy League has released early-application acceptance rates - here's where they all stand
Another year of early acceptance notifications, another year where the acceptance rates declined.
That's the story for the Ivy League classes of 2022, who received their acceptance, rejection, or deferral notes over the past week.
Almost all eight schools in the competitive Ivy League reported declines in acceptance rates, meaning it's the hardest year on record to get into the colleges.
Columbia and Cornell Universities did not publicly release early-admission figures.

Harvard reported the lowest acceptance rate, with 14.5% of applicants gaining acceptance. The rate stayed flat from a year previous. But every other school posted declines in admissions rates.
Despite getting more difficult, the rates are actually higher than acceptance rates during regular admission in the spring. For comparison, Harvard's acceptance rate released for regular decision last spring, the lowest in the Ivy League, was 5.2% for the class of 2021. Cornell, which has the highest in the Ivy League, was 12.5%.
Early applications come with some stipulations. Harvard, Princeton, and Yale are restrictive early-action schools, meaning applicants can apply to only one school early but have until May to accept.
