A diverse and talented group of 641 high school students who applied for early admission to Johns Hopkins University were offered admission today, making them the first members of the undergraduate Class of 2023.

In choosing to apply under the early decision plan, these students identified Johns Hopkins as their top choice and committed to attend if admitted.

The 2,068 applicants represent a slight increase from the then-record number who applied early decision last year. Of the 641 admitted students, 32 percent plan to study in the Whiting School of Engineering and 68 percent plan to study in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences.

“These impressive students are joining the Johns Hopkins community at one of the most exciting times in the university’s history,” said Dean of Undergraduate Admissions Ellen Kim, pointing to the academic opportunities, focus on student services, and the landmark $1.8 billion donation from alumnus Michael Bloomberg that will allow for more comprehensive financial aid packages for undergraduates, including eliminating loans for domestic students.
