Yield Rates for the Class of 2025

Learn What Yield Rates Look Like for the Class of 2025

After many colleges reported all-time low acceptance rates, some students might be curious about their yield rates, or just how many of these admitted applicants have chosen to enroll. Yield is a priority for every college because it impacts their place on rankings lists and it can also influence their bond ratings.

As a result, many universities have aimed to improve their yield rates over recent years by utilizing strategies and techniques, like demonstrated interest, to ensure students are serious about applying to their school. Keep reading to learn more about the yield rates at various colleges for the class of 2025, during what was an unprecedented admissions cycle.

When reviewing yield rates, it’s important to also pay attention to what we’re not seeing. Namely, many colleges haven’t released their yield rates yet because they are still crunching the numbers and admitting students off of their waitlist in order to round out their freshmen class. Given all of the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and disruptions to the admissions process, many schools have longer waitlists than they did during previous years. As a result, yield rates for some top colleges aren’t available yet, but we will continue to update these statistics as more information becomes available.

School Yield Rate  Admit Rate
Amherst College  42% 8%
Bowdoin College  60% 8.8%
Colby College 44% 8%
 Dartmouth College 66% 6.2%
 New York University 51% 12.8%
 Swarthmore College 43% 8%
 Tulane Univesity 45% 9.7%
 Wesleyan University 31% 19.4%

Yield is an important metric for students and families to consider because it can impact college admissions decisions. College admissions officers are likely to continue to assess demonstrated interest, which is why it is so important for applicants to do their research and clearly articulate why their best-fit college is truly the right choice for them.

For over a decade, yield rates have overall declined, particularly as students continue to apply to a greater number of colleges. During this last year, many top schools received more applications than ever before, meaning yield rates are likely to remain hard to predict. Waitlists for the class of 2025 were also longer, so some applicants may still be unsure about where they ultimately choose to enroll.
