New Harvard Class Most Diverse Ever

+ More

Three years after Harvard launched an initiative to improve its students' socioeconomic diversity, the newly admitted Class of 2011 is the most diverse ever, the Crimson reports. Twenty-six percent of students in the Class of 2011 will be eligible for the new financial aid initiative, which waives all fees for families earning less than $60,000 a year. The Harvard class is also the most selective ever; only 2,058 of 22,955 were admitted. Meanwhile, Class of 2011?!? Time moves way too fast.
