The official announcement was made through the Yale News on Ivy Day, March 31, 2022.
The Yale admissions team is also looking forward to inviting newly-admitted students to the campus for Bulldog Days, an exciting program that showcases academic and extracurricular life at Yale. This event was held virtually for two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I am excited to re-establish this important campus tradition and am grateful to the countless students, faculty, and staff across Yale College who will help to make this year’s event a success,” Quinlan said.

How I Got Into Yale and Oxford
Only 2,234 students were accepted into Yale’s class of 2026, with 1,434 coming from the regular admissions round.
The record number of applications is consistent with the latest data reported by the Common Application. This data confirmed that college applications were up nationwide, especially at Ivy League and other highly selective schools. This trend is likely because many schools don’t require the SAT/ACT, and students are applying to more schools than ever before.
Yale received a record number of applications this year and had one of the lowest acceptance rates ever. The chart below shows Yale’s admissions statistics over the last three years.
|Class of 2024||Class of 2025||Class of 2026|
|Total First-Year Applicants||35,220||46,905||50,015|
