Infographic: Select Acceptance Rate Changes Between Last Year and This Year
Wondering how last year's acceptance rates differed from this year's? Some schools have released their yields and published the latest data, and we've gathered a few samples to demonstrate the differences.

However, NYU and Princeton saw acceptance rates fall compared to last year, while both Tufts and Duke reported no differences between last year's rates and this year's.</p><p class="shortcode-media shortcode-media-rebelmouse-image"> <img type="lazy-image" data-runner-src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMjkyMjY3OS9vcmlnaW4ucG5nIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTYyNjI5MjIzN30.hO2oCfnPq4rSo4IZDxX9GpgFOWMZ5M5S-Tpcke3cHNI/img.png?width=980" id="943ce" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="6a44a2e8973f294893a9428dd21f3f7e" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" alt="Acceptance rate changes: class of 2023 vs. class of 2024" data-width="800" data-height="2000" /> <small class="image-media media-photo-credit" placeholder="Add Photo Credit...">College Confidential</small></p><p><br/></p><h2>Share Your Thoughts</h2><p>We'd love to hear your thoughts on this topic. <a href="https://talk.collegeconfidential.com/college-admissions/2182099-infographic-select-acceptance-rate-changes-between-last-year-and-this-year-p1.html?new=1" target="_blank">Check out our forum to contribute to the conversation!</a><a href="https://talk.collegeconfidential.com/college-admissions/2182099-infographic-select-acceptance-rate-changes-between-last-year-and-this-year-p1.html?new=1"></a></p>
