Princeton University once again admitted 13 transfer applicants in its second year of reinstatement. This year, the number of applicants fell from 1,429 to 1,003. Consequently, the acceptance rate rose from 0.9% to 1.3%. Once again, Princeton clearly reiterated, it encourages applicants from low-income, military or community college backgrounds to apply as transfers.
Princeton wants these demographics to help enhance the school’s diversity. Of the 13 admitted applicants, eight are first-generation college students.
Finally, with respect to the military applicants, Princeton’s financial aid package will likely allow you to keep your veteran benefits and apply them toward graduate school.
