    Is likely letter/early write still a thing at Amherst?

    We can begin to expect some of us get early writes the first week of March.

    Guess I'll do this for future applicants:

    SAT/ACT Score: 1540
    G.P.A(weighted and unweighted): 3.91 (UW)/ 5.3 (W)
    Other unis you've applied to(post decision if any): Brown (ED, rejection), Reed (Acceptance), New College of Florida (Acceptance), St. John's (Acceptance), Cornell, Dartmouth, Carleton, Swarthmore, etc.
    SAT II (score and subject): None.
    Class Rank: 15/570ish
    AP Classes: Human Geo (5), World (5), Spanish Lang (5), US History (5), English Lang (5), Macroeconomics (4), Gov (4), Calc BC, Stats, Art History, Psych, English Lit, Physics I, Environmental Science.
    Academic Awards: TASP, Scholastic Writing Awards, did DIVOH.

    Extra Curricular: Founded a club, did an internship focused on Latin America, helped start a literary magazine, was involved Model UN and a few activist organizations.
    Essays(1-10): I don't believe in rating your own essays. I wrote mine on being trans and having to deal with immigrating and coming out to an unaccepting family.
    Recommendations (1-10): One of them was pretty lukewarm, I believe. The other one was glowing.
    Additional Comments: I really did not expect to get in early for RD, especially after getting straight-up rejected by Brown during the ED round. I am beyond thankful and excited to attend!

    does anyone know why decisions came out so early this year?

    First, congrats to all admitted! Amherst is a special place. It certainly was a life changing place for me in all good ways.

    Amherst has a new Dean of Admissions in his 2nd admissions cycle, and he may be a factor in the apparent increase in early writes this year. Amherst also realizes it is competing against other elite institutions in the RD round and that they likely have a better chance at getting early admittees to matriculate. You love the one who loves you back, and Amherst is showing the love w/early writes.

    Do the early writes come out in waves?

  • mammoth85mammoth85 34 replies0 threads Junior Member
    @TRIPPIEREDD12 I'm not currently privy to the inner workings of the Admissions Office, but the vast majority of RD admits will come as they normally do in March. So those awaiting a decision shouldn't fret that they didn't receive early writes.
