    Does anyone know how to find differentiated acceptance rates specifically for ED2? I've been following these annual acceptance rate topics for 3 years and have never seen ED2 broken out from ED generally. Yet I occasionally see people post elsewhere specific ED2 data for specific schools in response to questions that suggests they are getting it somewhere. I've tried Googling the Common Set Data or the colleges websites in general and usually their press releases just discuss ED as a block.

    We're trying to understand the differential for the ED2 rate versus ED1 for certain schools.

    Any information on Northeastern yet?
  • bronze2bronze2 Registered User Posts: 137 Junior Member
    @citivas very few schools publicize the ED2 information... a few have it in the common data set, but if they announce ED1 numbers, we usually have to wait until they announce the next year's class profile or release the CDS to get an idea how many additional applications they receive for ED2.

    Not sure if this is exactly helpful because it doesn't include any acceptance numbers. For the class of 2022 Bates College had 7,688 applications (this is for both ED1/2 and RD). This is a 45% increase from last year. http://www.bates.edu/news/2018/02/21/bates-college-attracts-record-number-of-applications-for-incoming-class/

    There's some unconfirmed sources that say UChicago accepted only 1160ish of 13,000 (9%) of its early applicants
  • bronze2bronze2 Registered User Posts: 137 Junior Member
    1160 ED doesn't leave much room for a class size of 1740
  • jin2000jin2000 Registered User Posts: 89 Junior Member
    @bronze2 Yeah it doesn’t, but it’s similar to what happened last year with 75-80% of the class being filled with early applicants.

    Seems like RD is going to be ugly at a lot of compeltive admissions schools.

    @panth33m, it already is.

    Also, UChicago has both ED and EA. I believe the acceptance rate through ED is much higher than through EA. Not all the EA admits will accept either, so there would be a few more slots in RD. Though UChicago also offers deferred admission to the next year, which takes up a few more slots.

    Anything on Boston University?
  • bronze2bronze2 Registered User Posts: 137 Junior Member
    MIT just released RD results. http://mitadmissions.org/blogs/entry/mit-regular-action-decisions-now-available-online5

    1,464/21,708 = 6.7% for the entire applicant pool. Just 800 places offered in RD after 664/9,557 accepted during EA.

    Last year was 1,438/20,247.

    With colleges about to boast of their record applicant pool and record low acceptance rate, it is sobering to think that only 35 years ago, Harvard had an acceptance rate of 17%. And in the 1940s, it was 90% in some years. Here is a well-researched post on Quora with links to the historical record of Harvard admissions.

    https://www.quora.com/What-was-the-acceptance-rate-at-Harvard-+30-years-ago

    Last year, there were 38 schools with acceptance rates below 20%. Following the limited data so far concerning the increase in applications for the class of 2022, we will now see around 50 schools with acceptance rates below 20%.
