Why is admission to University Park so competitive?

Last year Penn State received more than 50,000 first-year (freshmen) baccalaureate applications, over 35,000 of which requested University Park as the first choice campus. The University typically plans to enroll approximately 7,000 new students at University Park each year.

The number of applications we receive makes the academic profile of our applicant pool quite competitive. As a result, even students with strong academic records may receive an offer of admission to their alternate campus choice.
