With the application deadline behind us, we in the Admissions Office have turned our attention to reading all of your submissions — no small feat, considering we received 7,065 applications this year! While we can’t share decisions until April 1, we can share some some interesting facts we’ve learned so far about this year’s talented applicant pool:

  • Students applied from 91 countries, all 50 states and the District of Columbia, Guam, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, and the Northern Mariana Islands.
  • We received the most applications from Ohio —769. (California came in a close second, with 760 applications.)
  • 22 students applied from Kenya
  • The most common girls’ name among our applicants: Hannah. The most common guys’ name? William. (Not a bad name, if I say so myself.)

7,065 applications to read? We're going to need some caffeine.
