High-Ranking Colleges That Disclosed Gender Data on Their Early Decision Students

Many of the nation’s most selective colleges and universities recently released data on their early decision or early action applicant pools and acceptance decisions. Some of these schools included data on the gender of the students accepted early.

At Princeton University in New Jersey 799 students were accepted from a pool of 5,402 early applicants. The applicant pool was the largest in seven years. Those accepted from the early applicants were equally divided between men and women.

At the University of Pennsylvania, 1,312 students were admitted from a pool of 7,074 early applicants. These students commit to enroll when accepted. The early applicant pool was the largest in the university’s history. Women make up 52 percent of the students admitted in the early decision process.

At Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, 225 students were admitted in its binding early decision process. Of those admitted, only 43 percent are women. Trinity College holds a second round of early decision with acceptances announced in mid-February.

Harvard University admitted 964 students from a pool of 6,630 early action applicants. The Harvard program is nonbinding, so accepted students have until May to decide if they want to enroll. Women are 47 percent of the students admitted early, down from 48 percent a year ago.

Brown University admitted 738 students in its binding early decision admissions process. These students were selected from an applicant pool of 3,502 students. Of the accepted students, 430 are women and 308 are men. Thus, women make up more than 58 percent of all students admitted early at Brown.
