Harvard University reports that it accepted 964 students in its early action admissions process. Students accepted early are not bound to accept the university’s offer of admission and have until May 1 to make the decision whether to enroll.
African Americans make up 13.9 percent of all students admitted in the early action process. This is up from 12.6 percent a year ago.
Black students make up 13.2 percent of the current first-year class at Harvard.
