Boost Your Odds 50% With These Early Action Schools

Posted in Your College List, Early Admission, Class of 2024

earlyactionLooking for a way to enhance admission odds without obligating yourself to attend?  Here's a list of colleges with early action admission rates that are at least 50% higher than their regular decision admission rates.  

Unlike Early Decision, Early Action is non-binding, so it nearly always works to your advantage.  And as the list shows, this advantage can be meaningful if you're a competitive applicant...all for simply applying 45-60 days earlier than normal.  

With most early action deadlines occuring in early November, the time is now to take a closer look.

The Early Admission Advantage (Part 3 of 3)

Posted in Early Admission, Class of 2024

PART III: Putting Early Admission Strategies to Work

targets2In Part II of this series developed an early admission strategy based on your competitiveness as an applicant, your college list, and your strength of commitment to the top schools on your list.  If you're a competitive applicant with strong qualifications, we recommend that you:

  • Take full advantage of Early Action for all the schools on your list
  • Apply Restrictive Early Action to your top school or when the restrictions don't inhibit your ability to take advantage of early admission programs at higher ranked schools 
  • Apply Early Decision I when you are strongly committed to attending your top choice school and have no concerns about affordability
  • Apply Early Decision II if you have been denied admission to your top choice school, you're strongly committed to attending this ED II school as your next best option, and have no concerns about affordability

With this early admission strategy in place, let's put it to work in Part III against a couple of hypothetical applicants.

Notable Admission Rate Changes for the Class of 2023

Posted in Class of 2024, Class of 2023

surprised-student

Given how sophisticated colleges have become in recruiting applicants, it's dangerous to rely on old admissions data.  

We've taken a look at our coverage universe and identified schools with notable admission rate differences between the Class of 2023 and the Class of 2022. In addition to providing the admission rates, we've included some commentary to explain why as well as a link back to the source article.

This year's notable changes are primarily about falling admission rates with a smattering of rising rates at BYU and three University of California campuses.  For institutions with declining admission rates, much of this is attributable to year over year application growth and declines in admitted students.  While some institutions admitted fewer students to compensate for overenrollment the previous year, we suspect others have done so as a result of admitted higher proportions of applicants through early decision/early action programs. 

Depending on how you categorize schools, the admission rate change may be enough to turn a likely into a target or target into a reach.  Regardless, take a moment to review the list—the last thing anyone needs at this point is a surprise!

College Kickstart subscribers: Class of 2023 admission rates have already been incorporated into the latest release of College Kickstart.

How Much Does Being a Legacy Help Your College Admissions Odds?

Posted in Class of 2023, Perspectives

wsjHere's an interesting article from the Wall Street Journal on the impact of being a legacy applicant on college admissions.  While the article focuses on how legacy admissions impacts efforts to expand access and diversity, it also sheds light on the legacy advantage at institutions such as Notre Dame, the University of Virginia, Georgetown, Princeton and Harvard, where the legacy admission rate can be as much as 2-5 times higher than the general rate.
