More than 29,000 high school students applied for a spot in the Harvard College class of 2013, the Crimson reported Tuesday. The news means that Harvard will outpace Yale by over 3,000 total applications this year; Yale has received about 26,000 total applications for the class of 2013, Dean of Admissions Jeff Brenzel told the News last week. While Harvard’s freshman class is larger than that of Yale, both universities aim to admit roughly the same number of total applicants. Last year, Harvard accepted 1,948 applicants, according to the Crimson, and Brenzel has said Yale will aim to admit between 1,900 and 2,000 applicants this year.
