Here's the latest Class of 2027 Acceptance Rates for T100 collleges

Some are my guesses for now but I'll update this every couple of days until the list is as complete as possible. The key takeaway is that there is still a huge amount of downward pressure on acceptance rates because more people are applying now that the pandemic is leveled off and there are no travel restrictions. Most colleges are still TEST OPTIONAL so everyone is still shooting their shot. Some colleges like Tulane, NEastern, and USC are strategically using ED, EDII to get really decent yields but low admit rates for RD. NEastern is #44 and NWestern is #10 but their admit rates are identical. Many students are foolishly lining up to get into NEastern when they should be trying to get into schools with better reputations and academics. UMich, UVA, UCSB, Notre Dame, WashU, and Rochester are much better schools than Tulane and NEastern and are easier to get into as well.
