Several high school seniors from Magen David Yeshivah High School in Brooklyn have gained acceptance to some of the best colleges in the country.
One student was accepted to the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, the second MDY graduate to be admitted to Wharton in the last two years.

Nine students were admitted to New York University’s undergraduate programs, including the Stern School of Business, the Gallatin School of Individualized Study, the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, and the Polytechnic Institute. NYU is ranked the 33rd best university for undergraduate study in the U.S. News and World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” 2012 report.

Two students gained entry to Babson College, a college located in Boston which specializes in business and entrepreneurship.

Fifteen students were admitted to various CUNY colleges as Macaulay Honors Scholars, a title that awards promising students with a full-scholarship and personal computer for the duration of their undergraduate study.

Brandeis University (#31), Boston University (#53), and Northeastern University (#62) are among the other Massachusetts campuses to have admitted students from MDY. One student gained admission to George Washington University (#50) in D.C., two to the University of Maryland, College Park (#55), and three to Binghamton University (#90), widely regarded as the finest undergraduate campus in the SUNY system.

Five students were admitted to the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan.

According to a statement submitted by the high school, roughly fifteen percent of the graduating class earned $1.1 million in merit-based scholarships to their respective colleges.

As the number of applications to universities around the country surge, and admission rates continue to drop, annually, the impressive performance by the 2012 graduating class at MDY testifies to the effectiveness of its academic curricula. Students are given a comprehensive education in Judaic and secular studies, and juniors and seniors can choose from a vast array of AP programs, giving them the opportunity to take college-level courses and earn college credits while still in high school.

In addition, students at MDY can take advantage of a plethora of extracurricular activities, including: Mock Trial, Debate, Chess, Basketball, Softball, Tennis, First Aid, and other programs.

Seniors learned of their admissions decisions in late March and early April. As some were placed on a waitlist, the precise number of accepted students is not yet complete.

Several of the above universities, including the University of Pennsylvania, Brandeis University, and the University of Maryland, College Park, are well known for their Jewish undergraduate student populations.
