PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Brown University has accepted more than 550 early-decision applicants from its largest ever pool of candidates.
The Ivy League school said Thursday that those accepted were chosen from a record 3,010 people who applied early decision for the Class of 2017.
The university says of the 558 students accepted, 295 are female and 263 are male. They come from 42 states and 26 countries. Twenty-two percent are from New England, and 10 percent are from outside the U.S., with the most international students coming from China, Canada, Korea and Turkey. Twelve percent are in the first generation in their family to attend college.
Engineering, biology, economics, history and English are the top academic concentrations.
Brown’s deadline for regular decision applicants is Jan. 2.
