Parker (Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Tom Parker) expects that about 15-20 of the students deferred admission will be accepted in the spring, when regular decisions are made. They will be competing with the roughtly 7,650 regular decision applicants to the College. This represents approximately one percent drop in applicants from last year, when over 7,700 regular decision applications were recieved. This is notable because the previous year, the college say a 17-percent jump in applicants. According to Parker, most liberal arts colleges have seen similar decreases in regular applications.
The Class of 2013 is slated to have 465 students, 25 more students than the Class of 2012. Parker said there had been plans to gradually increase the size of the accepted class, but that the process was sped up in order to raise additional revenue given the economic climate.
