On Friday, March 17, acceptance letters for the Class of 2021 were put into the mail. The pool was the second-largest in the College’s history with more than 6,300 applications arriving from 46 states and 106 countries.
“This was a fantastic applicant pool to review,” said Director of Admissions Gail Sweezey. “The students were academically talented and demonstrated high levels of extracurricular diversity. We will be delighted to welcome them to campus as members of the Class of 2021.”
Applicants from the Early Decision I and Early Decision II deadlines have already received their acceptances.
Accepted students can share their reactions—and current students and alums can follow the excitement!—on social media with #gburg2021. They can also join the Class of 2021 Facebook group in order to connect with their future classmates and stay up-to-date with the latest conversations.
