It looks like Johns Hopkins University is becoming more popular with high school students who choose to apply to the Baltimore university.
According to NYTimes.com, JHU's yield - the percentage of accepted students who chose to matriculate - has increased each of the last two admissions seasons. For those applying to enter the university as freshmen in Fall 2012, the yeild grew to 37.9 percent. Just two years ago Johns Hopkins' yield was 32.8 percent.
These numbers are still far below yield rates for colleges like Penn, Dartmouth, and Brown, which have yield rates of roughly 50 percent and higher. Harvard's is 81 percent. Johns Hopkins' yield is more in line with colleges like Colby, Hamilton, Rutgers, Pitzer, and Wake Forest, all with yield rates of roughly a third.
