Acceptance from College

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am in my senior year of college and had applied to a decent amount of schools because I read about the low acceptance rates and wanted to increase my chances. I was accepted to 1 school and have more interviews scheduled for others. I feel like a tremendous weight had been lifted off my shoulders and really think I will like this school. I am however hoping that a local school also accepts me so I can save on rent/food etc. I have seen different stats about acceptance rates and average ages upon entering. I will be 22 when the classes start and was curious what the average age of my classmates will be? I have seen different ages, acceptance rates etc. from different sources and they are not consistent with each other. I am extremely grateful and excited but I am also a bit nervous.

Highly variable would be the best answer. But from what I’ve seen and heard in the past I’ll break it down based on a class of 30: 4-5 in their young 20’s like yourself, 10-15 in their mid to late 20’s, 4-5 in their 30’s, 2-3 in their 40’s, 1-2 in their 50’s and above.

Programs usually share the average age of applicants on their websites, usually the tab is called "class profile." Try looking for this. Best of luck and congrats on your first acceptance.
