Blacks Make Up 9 Percent of Early Admits at Williams College

Williams College, the highly selective liberal arts college in western Massachusetts, reports that it admitted 216 students during its early admissions cycle this winter. Nearly 41 percent of all early applicants were admitted to Williams. This is more than double the admission rate at Williams during last spring’s regular admissions cycle.

Williams reports that 19 of the 216 students admitted early are African Americans. Thus, blacks make up nearly 9 percent of all students admitted early. Blacks are 10 percent of the entire freshman class currently enrolled at Williams.
