BREAKING: Penn announced regular decision admission results for the Class of 2026, but declined for the first time in recent memory to share its acceptance rate.

This year's regular decision admissions cycle marks a shift from past years, given that the University is not publicly highlighting its acceptance rate for its incoming class. Two of the University's peer institutions — Princeton University and Cornell University — shared in Penn's decision to withhold detailed admissions figures after regular decision applicants were notified Thursday evening. 

"We’re focusing not on how hard we are to get into, but on who these young people are that we chose," Associate Vice Provost and Dean of Admissions Whitney Soule told The Wall Street Journal.
