Eleven percent of the 799 accepted students were international students, meaning 700 students from the United States were accepted. This averages to 14 students accepted per state. In Pennsylvania, Dieruff High School composed 20% of those 14 accepted students. Moreover, the Huskies boasted two Princeton acceptances from their Class of 2016.
