The University released its admissions decisions for the Class of 2023 on Friday. The 2,309 new students were chosen from a pool of 30,163 regular decision applicants with an acceptance rate of 7.7 percent. 

Including early decision acceptances, the Class of 2023 had an acceptance rate of 9.2 percent: a 0.7 percent decrease from last year. The applicant pool grew by 3,102 from last year. 

The Class of 2023 comes from 49 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, four U.S. territories and 91 countries, including China, Canada, India and Nigeria.  

These are the first students admitted to the University since Michael Bloomberg’s historic $1.8 billion donation in November. The gift allows the University to permanently conduct need-blind admissions which means family income is not considered. Beginning in the fall, the University will no longer offer financial packages that include student loans and instead will offer scholarships that do not need to be repaid. 

Admitted students have until May 1 to confirm their spots.
