How the onset of the pandemic affected the 2020 admissions season
From The Chronicle: “Over all, the picture that emerges is that institutions accepted far more students in 2020 and a lower share of those students enrolled relative to 2019. Colleges issued nearly 500,000 more acceptances, pushing up the acceptance rate by 4 percentage points, while the yield — or the percentage of accepted students who subsequently enrolled — went down by 3 percent. … Most colleges became less selective – nearly two out of three four-year institutions saw their acceptance rate increase between 2019 and 2020.”
