    Numbers of early apps are up at a lot of schools (notable exceptions include Harvard and Columbia). Does this portend an overall increase in apps or just a shift from RD to early?

    Percent increase in early applications over last year:
    Rice 19.5%
    Cornell 17.4%
    Duke 16.3%
    Penn 15.1%
    Boston College 15.0% (approx., from counselor letter)
    MIT 13.9%
    Dartmouth 13.6%
    Yale 12.7%
    Brown 10.5%
    Notre Dame 9.6%
    Princeton 8.0%
    Northwestern 6.0%
    Johns Hopkins 5.3%
    Harvard 2.4%
    Columbia 0.0%

    @Maximilias I left Notre Dame in the EA section whereas Duke and Dartmouth are ED schools. The ED schools should have near 100% acceptance, and hence their early admits guarantee that number of spots will be filled, with minor deviations (attrition and a few deferrals to 2023). the EA admits have a lower conversion rate for next year's class.

    @evergreen5 I admit that I like to delve into these admission statistics. Since the schools never release all their data we are left with trying to decipher based on the tidbits we do get. I would say that this is more likely a shift from RD to early. However, I also think that overall admission rates will once again be lower not so much because we get more applicants but because the same applicants apply to more schools. All these ED and Early results may spook some RD candidates into submitting one or two more applications as a hedge. All speculative but interesting at this point.

    Adding Emory University:
    http://news.emory.edu/stories/2017/12/er_early_decision_questbridge/campus.html
    Emory University has seen a record number of applications for the first round of Early Decision admissions to Emory College of Arts and Sciences and Oxford College — and accepted a record 30 stellar students from the QuestBridge National College Match program to its Class of 2022. More than 1,700 students applied to Emory in the first round of Early Decision. The admitted QuestBridge Scholars cohort is three times the typical yearly match.... At the same time, admission rates for the first round of Early Decision to Emory University’s undergraduate colleges fell to 31 percent for Emory College and 25 percent for Oxford College. In December, 503 students were offered admission to Emory College and 223 to Oxford. ...The deadline for Early Decision II and Regular Decision applications is Jan. 1, to round out classes of 1,350 students in Emory College and 485 in Oxford College.
    The admission rates for Emory can be a bit confusing since students may apply to Emory College, Oxford College, or both.

    Apparently Columbia admitted 15.9% last year and they got one less app this year, so I feel like their admit rate should be similar: http://www.thedp.com/article/2017/12/early-decision-ivy-league-philadelphia-upenn-admissions-legacy

    Updating Northwestern
    https://dailynorthwestern.com/2018/01/08/campus/210486/
    Northwestern received a record number of applications in both the Early Decision and regular applicant pools, and anticipates a decline in acceptance rates for both groups, University officials told The Daily. After receiving the most Early Decision applications in its history this year, the University admitted 1,072 early applicants into the class of 2022 on Dec. 14.... Early applications for first-year students totaled 4,049, making the Early Decision acceptance rate about 26 percent. This is slightly down from last year’s Early Decision acceptance rate of 28 percent, Mills said. The number of students admitted through Early Decision represents another record high for the school, a University spokesman told The Daily in an email. NU is targeting an incoming class of 1,925 first-year students, Mills said, and projects that around 54 percent of that class will be filled by the newly-admitted early applicants....

    http://bcheights.com/2018/01/17/3170-admitted-early-action-class-2022/ Other fun facts:

    - Early apps up 15%, EA acceptance rate down 2%
    - Admitted EA average SAT 1453, average ACT 33 (compare to EA last year 1425 and 33)
    - Total app pool for class of 2022 is 31,000, a 9% increase
    - 20% of deferred students may be accepted in RD
    Because BC has to compete with many prestigious institutions for students, the Office of Undergraduate Admission has boosted its efforts to increase the yield of accepted students.

    Updating Hamilton: https://spec.hamilton.edu/admission-office-sees-record-number-of-applications-from-students-for-class-of-2022-9119ebb16111
    Last month, on Dec. 15, Hamilton College notified 191 students that they had been accepted into the Class of 2022. The majority of these students applied through Hamilton’s Early Decision Plan I program, for which applications were due Nov. 15. Of the 191 accepted students, 161 applied through this Early Decision plan, which is a binding commitment for prospective students. The remaining 25 accepted students were from the non-profit scholarship programs QuestBridge and the Posse Foundation. This is the first time Hamilton has accepted QuestBridge scholars; the College partnered with the organization last summer. These 191 students were accepted from a total pool of 647 applicants for an acceptance rate of around 29.5 percent.
