Yale Acceptance Rate to Decline as Applications Rise to Record

Jan. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Yale University’s acceptance rate will drop below last year’s 7.1 percent as undergraduate applications rose to a record.

The number of applications rose 2.8 percent to 29,790 from the previous year, Jeffrey Brenzel, dean of undergraduate admissions, said in an e-mail. About 2,000 will win a seat to start the 2013-14 school year in New Haven, Connecticut.

This year, Yale allowed students to request that their materials be shared with Yale-NUS College, the new liberal arts college in Singapore that the university is jointly founding with the National University of Singapore. The two schools operate independent admissions processes.
