Middlebury Offers Admission to 1,297 to the Class of 2022

March 28, 2018


MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – Middlebury College has offered admission to 1,297 students who applied as regular decision candidates for the Class of 2022. They join the 399 accepted through Middlebury’s early admissions program in December and February, and bring the total number of admitted students to 1,696. In all, the students were selected from a pool of 9,230 applicants, the largest in the College’s history. The overall acceptance rate, including those who applied early decision, was 18.4 percent.
 

The students accepted to the Middlebury Class of 2022 come from 71 countries and all 50 states plus Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. The five states with the most admitted students are, in order, New York, California, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Illinois.

Nicole Curvin, director of admissions and coordinator of multicultural recruitment, noted that this year’s applicant pool included more international and domestic students of color than any previous year.

“The demographics of our applicant pool continue to shift,” said Curvin. “Our pool now includes more students of color, international students, and those coming from outside of our local region. It is heartening to see that our efforts have broadened our reach and produced the largest applicant pool ever.”

Middlebury College’s Office of Admissions will now turn its attention to assisting admitted students with their decisions. “Our admitted students are always excited to learn of their admission to Middlebury,” said Greg Buckles, dean of admissions. “It represents the culmination of years of effort of their parts. It also marks the shift in our relationship with those students. Now it’s our turn to show admitted students why we see them as terrific matches for the Middlebury community.”

As part of that effort, Middlebury will provide admitted students with an opportunity to learn more about the College during Campus Preview Days, April 16–18, when those accepted through regular decision are invited to come to campus, take part in various events, and meet current students and faculty.

The College expects to enroll about 610 students in September 2018 and about 100 in February 2019. The Admissions Office anticipates that about 35 students admitted this year may request a gap year—a comparable number to recent years. Middlebury will award about $13.5 million in need-based financial aid to the class, with roughly 45 percent of the students receiving support.

Students learned of their admission by logging onto an admissions web page starting at 8 a.m. Eastern Time on Saturday, March 24. The College mailed letters to their homes on Friday, March 23.

Admitted students have until May 1 to accept Middlebury’s offer.

Wow. when I started at Middlebury in 1966 there were only 1200 in the whole school. Men were not allowed to cross 125 after dark. dave
