Early Decision Schools That Double Admission Odds

Posted in Your College List, Early Admission, Class of 2022

earlydecisionLooking for a way to enhance admission odds? Here's a list of schools with early decision admission rates that are at least twice as high as their regular decision admission rates.  

Because Early Decision is a binding commitment, it only makes sense if you're a competitive applicant, affordability isn't an issue, and you're absolutely certain it's the school for you. But as the list shows, there can be a meaningful advantage in applying this way if you are.  For example, at Swarthmore College, over half of the incoming class is admitted through Early Decision, and the admission rate is 34% vs. 11% for those who applied via regular decision.  That's a difference too big to ignore.

Note: most early decision deadlines occur in early November, so the time is now to consider if it makes sense for you. Click here for more information about early admission, and here to find out how College Kickstart can help you take full advantage.

Boost Your Odds 50% With These Early Action Schools

Posted in Your College List, Early Admission, Class of 2022

earlyactionLooking for a way to boost 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 2022

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.

PART II: When and How to Take Advantage of Early Admission Programs

img-earlyIn Part I of this series we covered the fundamentals of college early admission programs.  We learned that:

  • Colleges offer early admission programs to manage yield, lock up prized applicants and improve prestige in the process
  • There can be as much as a 2-4x difference in admit rates between early and regular decision applicants
  • Because there is often a high proportion of an enrolled class coming through early admission, your chances of getting in via regular decision are actually worse than you might think

In short, you should always consider early admission programs as part of your college plan.  But under what conditions does it make sense and how do you apply it against your list of schools?  This is the topic for Part II.

PART I: The Fundamentals

early admission advantage

Simply put, early admission should always be considered as part of your college plan.

Why?  Because early action and early decision programs can be tremendously useful in helping a competitive candidate enhance admission odds.  By submitting your application early, you'll hear back earlier and in most instances improve your chances for admission.  Better yet, if you're accepted early, you'll be able to avoid the cost and effort of applying to schools of lower interest on your list.

In this three part series, we'll explore the fundamentals, when/how to take advantage of them, and where early admission is offered.  Read on for Part I.

Update #1 (7/31)

college kickstart logoMany colleges and universities have begun updating their websites for the Class of 2022 (2017-18) admission cycle.  While we expect the activity to continue into the late summer, several of the changes we've observed are worth noting. 

In particular, roughly 15 schools have introduced changes to the early admission plans available to you this fall.  Notable changes include new Early Decision I options at St. John's University and Villanova, a new Early Decision II option at Northeastern and an Early Action I option at the University of Richmond.  

If you're considering early admission, be sure to check out our list as it may impact how you decide to apply this fall.   Note for our subscribers: the data has already been incorporated into the product, so all you have to do to see how it impacts your plan is re-run College Kickstart.
