Admission is competitive and highly selective
We take a holistic approach to admissions. We will read closely your essay, short answers, recommendations and additional materials. Read our collection of outstanding essays.
Each year, we have about 5,000 applicants for a class of approximately 500 students. We look for smart, interesting students with diverse perspectives and the ability to excel academically. We're also looking for important personal qualities like integrity, idealism and intellectual curiosity.
Tell us what gets you excited, where you find ideas, how you plan to change the world . . . Show us who you really are.
If you have been affected by technical challenges with the Common Application, we want you to know that we’ll work with you to make sure your application is received and read in the spirit that it was sent. If after contacting the Common App Applicant Help Center you continue to have difficulty, please contact us (email@example.com) so that we may work together to get your application completed.
