Congratulations to a new class of Barnard women! Yesterday evening, Barnard sent out its decisions to regular decision applicants of the class of 2020. This year, Barnard received a total of 7,071 applications, and admitted a total of 16% of them, the lowest admission rate in the college’s history. This new record is a significant decrease from last year’s admissions rate, 19.5%.
The Barnard class of 2020 will be the first class to have applied under the college’s new transgender admissions policy, as well as the first class to take part in Foundations, the new general education requirements that will replace the Nine Ways of Knowing next year.
Everyone at Barnard is excited to welcome the class of 2020.
