    Adding Middlebury College:
    http://www.middlebury.edu/newsroom/archive/2017-news/node/561260
    Middlebury College has offered 326 students early admission to the Class of 2022. The admitted students were chosen from a pool of 650 applicants and represent about 45 percent of a class that is expected to total about 715.... Of the students admitted, 23 percent are students of color. First-generation students, meaning those who are the first in their family to attend college, represent another 11 percent. The College deferred 39 applicants, who will be considered for regular admission in the spring, and denied admission to 285 students.

    Adding Dartmouth College:
    http://www.thedartmouth.com/article/2017/12/dartmouth-admits-24-9-percent-of-early-applicants
    Dartmouth admitted 565 students to the Class of 2022 from a record-high 2,270 early applicants. The admitted students represent 24.9 percent of applicants, down from last year’s early decision acceptance rate of 27.8 percent and the lowest rate since 2010. The admitted students will comprise about 47 percent of the incoming class, in line with last year. The early application pool was 13.5 percent larger than last year’s pool of 1,999 applicants. The number of early-admitted students is a slight increase from last year’s total of 555 students....Twenty-six students were admitted through the QuestBridge program....

    This year's Early Action applicant pool grew once again, up 7% from last year; this is a strong testament both to the Georgetown brand and the increasing popularity of Early Action. The Georgetown College applicant pool grew by 8%, the School of Foreign Service by 6%, and the School of Nursing and Health Studies by 24%; the McDonough School of Business applicant pool remained similar to last year. Given that our Regular Decision pool typically mirrors trends seen at Early Action, we anticipate an increase in total applications come January as well.

    The Early Action pool continued to reflect Georgetown's commitment to enrolling a diverse class. This year's pool was 10% Black/African-American, 11% Hispanic/Latino, 15% Asian-American, 7% International, and 1% Native American.

    The academic quality of the pool was as strong as ever, making admissions committee decisions immensely difficult. We admitted 12% (1,002) of the 8,383 applicants. Students were admitted from 49 of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and 39 foreign countries. Admitted students were, on average, in the top 2% of their class. The SAT Verbal middle-50% range for admitted students was 710-770, and the SAT Math middle-50% range was 720-790. The ACT has become increasingly popular, with more than half of our applicant pool taking the ACT. The ACT middle-50% range for admitted students was 32-35.

    Anyone have WUSTL numbers?
  • Eck101Eck101 Registered User Posts: 8 New Member
    Is it possible to add the % of the freshman class that was filled through Early Decision?
  • bronze2bronze2 Registered User Posts: 137 Junior Member
    @ Eck101 we can get a sense of the % of freshman class being filled from ED, based on the Enrollment of the 2021 class given below.

    Note that with changes in Yale (larger class), Chicago (new EA/ED1/ED2), there can be some movements from year to year. For obvious reasons, I have kept EA and ED schools separate.

    Figures are given in the format "Acceptances / Applications" for the class of 2022 followed by the class of 2021, with enrollment E for the class of 2021.

    MIT EA. 2022: 664 / 9557 (6.9%). 2021: 657 / 8413 (7.8%). E 1102
    Stanford EA. 2022: ___ / ____ (___%). 2021: 721 / 7822 (9.2%). E 1708
    Georgetown EA. 2022: 1002 / 8383 (12.0%). 2021: 931 / 7822 (11.9%). E 1574
    Harvard EA. 2022: 964 / 6630 (14.5%). 2021: 938 / 6473 (14.5%). E 1687
    Yale EA. 2022: 842 / 5733 (14.7%). 2021: 871 / 5086 (17.1%). E 1580
    Princeton EA. 2022: 799 / 5402 (14.7%). 2021: 770 / 5003 (18.3%). E 1314
    Notre Dame EA. 2022: 1636 / 6598 (24.8%). 2021: 1470 / 6020 (24.4%). E 2050

    Penn ED. 2022: 1312 / 7074 (18.5%). 2021: 1354 / 6147 (22.0%). E 2457
    Rice ED. 2022: 371 / 1916 (19.4%). 2021: 329 / 1603 (20.5%). E 1048
    Brown ED. 2022: 738 / 3502 (21.1%). 2021: 695 / 3170 (21.9%). E 1729
    Duke ED. 2022: 875 / 4090 (21.4%). 2021: 864 / 3503 (24.7%). E 1751
    CMU ED. 2022: ____ / ____ (___%). 2021: 330 / 1375 (24.0%). E 1680
    Dartmouth ED. 2022: 565 / 2270 (24.9%). 2021: 555 / 1999 (27.8%). E 1222
    Cornell ED. 2022: ____ / ____ (___%). 2021: 1393 / 5401 (25.8%). E 3375
    JHU ED. 2022: 610 / 2037 (29.9%). 2021: 591 / 1934 (30.6%). E 1349

    Approximate from unofficial sources, and to be confirmed:
    Northwestern ED. 2022: ~1073 / 4058 (~26.5%). 2021: Apps ~995 / 3828 (26%). E 1912
    WUSTL ED. 2022: ~700 / 1850 (~38%). 2021: ~689 / 1815 (~38%). E 1780
    Vanderbilt ED1&2. 2022: ____ / ____ (___%). 2021: ~861 / 3647 (23.6%). E 1607

    No releases from Columbia and Chicago which are more reticent on their admissions statistics. See https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/grade-point/wp/2016/04/08/columbia-university-about-45-percent-of-freshmen-admitted-early/?utm_term=.da24ae3f9a93

    Columbia ED. 2022: ____ / 4085 (___%). 2021: ~651 / 4086 (~15.9%). E 1456
    Chicago EA/ED1&2. E 1740

    If anyone has more complete information, it would be helpful to have more blanks filled in.

    Hello bronze2, if you are listing colleges' EA rates from lowest to highest, shouldn't Notre Dame fall between Duke and Dartmouth, or does the Congregation of the Holy Cross get some special consideration?
  • sbjdorlosbjdorlo Registered User Posts: 5,092 Senior Member
    U Michigan stats? Seems crazily selective this year, but would love some stats.
  • BohseonBohseon Registered User Posts: 59 Junior Member
    The r/applyingtocollege is blowing up with "got deferred" from U Michigan, like to see the stats ^^^
  • sushirittosushiritto Registered User Posts: 2,259 Senior Member
    The Michigan admissions blog stated that they had "almost 40,000" EA apps this year. I'm speculating, but I'm thinking that Michigan EA acceptance rate will be around 15-20%

    Adding Wesleyan:
    http://wesleying.org/2017/12/19/wesleyan-sends-out-279-early-decision-acceptances-to-the-class-of-2022/
    For the second time ever, Wesleyan received over 700 applications for Early Decision 1. This year, the Office of Admission reviewed 718 applications for ED1 and sent out 279 acceptance letters to high school seniors ..... just over half of the Class of 2022 will be made up of students who are accepted through early decision rounds....This round of ED1 ranks just below last year’s record in terms of selectivity.
