Here are the Ivy League Class of 2025 (students graduating high school in 2021) acceptance rates:

Ivy League Class of 2025 Acceptance Rates
 Brown 5.4%
Columbia 3.7%
Cornell 9.0%
Dartmouth 6.2%
Harvard 3.4%
Penn 5.7%
Princeton 4.0%
Yale 4.6%

Applications to the Ivy League increased significantly this year. This is believed to be the result of the cancellation of the SAT and ACT testing dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Getting accepted to the Ivies and other highly competitive schools requires an outstanding application that sets the applicant apart from the competition. Starting to plan early in high school by choosing challenging coursework and extracurricular activities that connect to a student's interests and passions can make a huge difference in college acceptances.
