Princeton admits only 129 white American males

Princeton admits only 14% white American males. By Paul Mirengoff. [Figures corrected by original source.]

Princeton has offered admission to its class of 2025 to 1,498 applicants. According to numbers provided by the University, around fourteen percent of them are white American males. …

68 percent of the admitted applicants from the US identify as “persons of color.” … 52 percent are female. 48 percent are male. … 14 percent of the admitted applicants identify as international students.

Putting these numbers together, we see that only around 28 percent of admittees are white Americans. ….

We also don’t know how many of the small group of white American males whom Princeton admitted denounced their white maleness in their “personal statement.” Even if that’s not a prerequisite, it’s probably a good strategy.

The future beckons. Doesn’t look there’s much of a place for white males.
