Villanova University’s Michael M. Gaynor, Executive Director of Undergraduate Admission, has shared news this morning as the university releases its Early Action decisions later today.
According to Gaynor, Villanova received 13,353 Early Action applications for its Class of 2024. When all was said and done, Villanova’s Early Action admit rate for this admissions cycle was 25.3%.
Gaynor indicated that of those accepted to Villanova EA this cycle, the middle 50% weighted GPA on a traditional 4.00 scale was between 4.20 and 4.53, the middle 50% of SAT scores were between 1420 and 1510, and the middle 50% of ACT scores were between 32 and 34.
Meanwhile, earlier this admissions cycle Villanova received 1,053 Early Decision applications and the university anticipates that approximately 36% of its Class of 2024 will be accepted Early Decision. As of this time, Villanova has not provided its ED acceptance rate for this admissions cycle.
Villanova became quite selective two years ago when it instituted Early Decision for the first time. Yet, this admissions cycle, even the most hyper-selective colleges have experienced application declines and/or acceptance rate increases ED/REA/SCEA.
If you got into Villanova, well done! Now celebrate, by wearing your college colors!
