Cornell released 2026 admissions data. Fwiw,
there were 71,000 applications, a 7% admit rate, & a 68% yield. Dyson (4%), Arts & Sciences (5%), & Engineering (6%) had admit rates below the overall average.

Must annoy Arts College admits if Dyson is more selection because the applicants are smarter, as opposed to there are so freaking many people in love with the world of business-finance-deals. Which makes a useful acronym.



Harvard admit rate is so low it's measured in hundredths: 3.13%. The admit rate was 85% down from 83% last year. 61,200 applied, 1,950 admitted. Harvard Crimson reported all these groups set records for admit ratios for 2026

Women, 55% of enrollees vs 52% last year
Asian Americans, 28.6%
First generation college students, 19.4%
Native American & Hawaiian students
Not a record
African-American, 14.4%
Latinx, 11.9%

One wonders how much it's a business decision to fill so much of your entering class in mid-December.

So many ways to slice the data. Such as the ED accept rate vs regular rate for under-represented groups. Scoop them up before someone else does.

When I was a CAAAN chair, we were told that one big bonus in taking a large ED pool is that you have a big cohort that is happy they are in their first choice school. I don't look at that as a business decision.

Absolutely so. Early Decision-admits are happy campers.

It's possible Cornell doesn't cite all the bonuses. That you can come closer to getting the incoming class exactly where you want it, say 3,750 for Cornell, so you don't have empty dorm rooms (unlikely) or have to park extra enrollees in study rooms and even local hotels, is a big plus. That's a business decision, or a good-business byproduct of managing enrollment wisely. I suppose saying "business decision" sounds crass and uncaring.

Early decision also helps a school get underrepresented minorities. Harvard admitted 14.4% African-American (total ED and regular admission), Latinx 11.9%. Everyhone else has to work at it to approach Harvard-level ratios.

Underrepresented groups like athletes?
