Hi - there is a Hillel and a Jewish fraternity - AEPi. I have seen estimates of about 800 Jewish students at JMU. I have not been able to get much anecdotal info - don't know any Jewish students at JMU presently.
My daughter is Jewish and a senior at JMU. She was in a sorority that was all Jewish girls but she ended up not liking it so dropped out. She had gone to Hillel on occasions and found a nice group of friends, some jewish and some are not. It seems like there is an increase in the jewish population.
My daughter just received the following email from JMU. It does not say when admission decisions will be released...maybe mid-January, maybe earlier??
Thank you for submitting your application for admission to James Madison University. Our records indicate that you have applied for our non-binding Early Action admission. The Admissions Committee has been reviewing applications for the past five months and is on schedule to mail and post decisions by mid-January.

Thank you again for your interest in James Madison University,
I'm curious if anyone knows if JMU considers all applications that are received before the EA date, automatically considered for EA? My daughter applied early for all the schools she applied to, just to be ahead of the game, and many schools do this and we were not aware of it. Does anyone know if JMU does this too? Thanks
