Hundreds of thousands of high school students throughout the world will learn Thursday at 5 p.m. if they were accepted or rejected into the Ivy League.
This year, every school (that has released data so far) reported receiving historic numbers of applications — meaning this is the largest applicant pool for the Ivy League to date.
Harvard University, with 39,040 applicants, received the most applications of all the Ivies, beating last year’s 37,305.
Good luck to all of the aspiring Ivy Leaguers out there.
