Class of 2026 sets early application records, while The Ivy Dean’s students see incredible admissions results
Here at the Ivy Dean, there has been much cause for celebration recently: we helped our students to achieve phenomenal early acceptance results for the Class of 2026. Despite unusually low acceptance rates at top colleges, including those in the Ivy League, our students gained admission to Harvard, Princeton, Cornell, the University of Pennsylvania, Brown, Georgetown, NYU and Colgate, among others.
While not surprising, these results are noteworthy given the current and unprecedented higher education climate. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many schools waived the requirement for SAT/ACT scores, leading more students to apply to schools that would have ordinarily been beyond their reach. The early applicant pool for many top colleges was therefore unnaturally large, driving down acceptance rates for many of them, making this one of the most competitive early admissions cycle in the Ivy League’s history. Nevertheless, we still had exceptional results.
As leaders in college admissions counselling, our mission is to use our experience and expertise to give students their best chance of being admitted to their preferred college. We do not select our clients based on their academic performance or extra-curricular activities; rather, students and their families of all backgrounds and capabilities come to us because they want our help. We then provide one-on-one coaching and our unique Application PositioningTM service to help all of our students present themselves in the best possible way to colleges, dramatically increasing their chances of being accepted.
