The applications are in! According to a Tweet by Director of Admissions Darryl Uy Kenyon received over 6,500 applications for the class of 2018. This is a 63% increase from last year’s 4,056 applications (352 Early Decision, 3,704 Regular Decision). With this influx of numbers, Kenyon’s 36% acceptance rate could decrease drastically. What remains to be seen is what the enrollment rate will be like, and whether or not this is a result of Kenyon axing their usual supplemental essays on the Common App.
