Percentage Of Harvard Applicants Who Received High Personal Ratings, According To SFFA

In Harvard’s application rating system, two or better is considered a high rating. The data below reflects SFFA’s analysis of the classes of 2014 through 2019.



SFFA’s analysis excludes a student group known as ALDCs (recruited athletes, children of alumni, children of faculty, and dean’s interest list). SFFA argued those students have higher admission rates than the general population and would have an outsized influence on the results. But Harvard said you can’t make conclusions about admission biases without looking at the entire applicant pool.
