Acceptance rates in all the Ivy League colleges have been on the decline during the last five years, making it harder than ever to get in. Of the Ivies, Cornell University accepts the greatest percentage of students, letting in 14.9 pecent of applicants, but even this amount has gone down from 18 percent for the class of 2015, Ivy Coach reports. The change is less drastic for the other schools, but they also maintain a similar trend of lower acceptance. Harvard University accepted 6.2 percent of applicants in 2010, but took 5.3 percent last year. Similarly, Columbia accepted 6.9 percent of students 5 years ago, but in 2015, it received 6.1 percent of the people who applied and Yale’s acceptance rate dropped from 7.4 percent to 6.5 percent, Ivy Coach reports.
