Harvard University Class of 2010

Harvard Admits 9.3 Percent Overall

Harvard saw a slight decrease in the number of applicants to its incoming class. 22,753 students applied, 77 fewer than last year. Harvard saw a record number of applicants for the incoming classes of 2008 and 2009, including a 15 percent increase in applications last year.

2,109 of the applicants, or 9.3 percent, were admitted. Harvard expects a yield of approximately 78 percent and is aiming for an incoming class of 1,684.

A record 9.8 percent of the admits are Latino, compared to 8.2 percent last year. The percentage of African-Americans admits remained constant at 10.5 percent. The percentage of Asian-Americans rose to 17.7 percent, still a full percentage point below the Class of 1998's mark.

A record 51.8 percent of admitted students are female, up from 49.5 percent last year.

Early Action

Harvard received approximately 4,000 applications for Early Admission, five percent fewer than last year's 4,214 applications; the previous year saw 3,889 applications.

The early application pool is comprised of 50.6 percent women. Harvard continues to see growth in application numbers from minority students. Asian Americans applicants totaled more than 23.2 percent, Latinos 5.7 percent, African Americans 5.2 percent, and Native Americans 0.8 percent.

Harvard accepted 800 students early, or 21 percent of applicants. 2,828 were deferred, 149 were rejected, 79 had incomplete applications, and 12 withdrew.
