    This year, 9,557 students applied for early admission to MIT, and we have offered early admission to 664. ....We deferred 6,210 applicants. These students will be reconsidered without prejudice in Regular Action. .... Because of the competitiveness of our pool, we have already informed 2,498 students that we will not be able to offer them admission this year. .... The balance of the applicants - 185 - withdrew from our process before we issued decisions.

    Anybody hear anything about the EA acceptance rate/stats for Caltech?

    With more applicants, schools are either filling the class earlier with EA/ED or bringing the admit rate down, and in many cases they are doing both!
