HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - Dartmouth College says its admission statistics for the class of 2023 reflect both the broadening appeal of the college and its increasing selectivity.

The Ivy League school in Hanover has offered admission to 7.9 percent of the 23,650 applicants. Both figures set new records.

The admitted students come from all U.S. states and territories plus 69 other countries. Nearly half are Americans of color, and 16 percent will be among the first in their families to attend college. About half of the admitted students qualify for financial aid, and nine percent are children of Dartmouth alumni.
