Ivy League Profile: Yale University
Yale University, one of the most prestigious and selective colleges in the United States, calls the city of New Haven, Connecticut, home. Founded in 1701, Yale has 6,494 undergraduate students, 10% of which are international, who are enrolled at Yale College. Yale is internationally recognized and thus highly competitive: as of the fall of 2021, their most recent freshmen class had 47,240 applicants, 5.3% of which were admitted. This represents a decrease in admission rates since the Class of 2022, which had a 6.3% acceptance rate. Like many other colleges, Yale has extended “its test-optional policy for first-year and transfer applicants to the 2022-2023 admissions cycle” in “response to the extraordinary circumstances associated with the pandemic”.
The Ivy Dean has helped dozens of students gain acceptance to Yale University over the past ten years. As a professional company with two expert college admissions counsellors – President Drusilla Blackman, who formerly served as Dean of Undergraduate Admissions at Columbia University and Dean of Graduate Admissions at Harvard University, and Christian Rabin – we have an in-depth understanding of how campus admissions officers decide which students to admit, waitlist and reject. Our experienced and dedicated counselors guide students and their families through every step of Yale’s admissions process, providing special assistance with application essays given their increased importance in the absence of standardized testing requirements.
