    Question: What does the 'SC' part of SCEA mean?

    Good article here on Chicago Early Application stats (EA, ED1, ED2 combined in recent years).

    https://www.chicagomaroon.com/article/2019/1/17/early-applications-2018-2019-cycle-rise-10-percent/

    The University received around 15,000 early-admission applications for the Class of 2023 during its first round of early admissions. This marks a 10 percent increase from last year’s figure, according to comments that Dean of College Admissions James Nondorf made to The Washington Post.

    The Post quotes Nondorf in an article that discusses the general trend of increased early applications being submitted to prestigious universities. The article cites Duke University and Brown University, whose early applicant numbers rose 19 and 21 percent this year, respectively.

    University spokesperson Marielle Sainvilus confirmed that the numbers Nondorf referenced in the article about The University's early applications are accurate.

    “The [complete] data will be released in the fall, when the full [2018-19] admissions cycle is finalized," she told The Maroon by email.

    According to online reports on an College Confidential forum, Nondorf told accepted students at a reception last January that the University received around 13,000 applications in the 2017-18 admission cycle’s early round, which is in line with Nondorf’s indication of a ten percent increase.

    The University's first round of early applications were due by November 1, and decisions were posted in December. The first round includes students who applied with “Early Action,” the non-binding option, and “Early Decision,” the binding option. Early decision students have to commit unless the financial aid package offered is not enough.

    The second round includes Early Decision II—also binding—and regular decision; the deadline for these was January 2.

    The University introduced Early Decision options in 2016; previously, the only admissions options were Early Action or Regular Decision.

    Previous increases in the number of early applications have varied from year to year; some have been more dramatic than this year’s ten percent increase. In the 2013-14 admissions cycle there were 11,143 early action applicants, in the 2012-13 cycle there were 10,316, in the 2011-12 cycle there were 8,698, and in the 2010-11 cycle there were 6,960, according to University news releases.

    Nondorf also told The Post that he is seeing a trend of more students from the Midwest and West Coast applying than in previous years, when early rounds were dominated by students on the East Coast.

    “Everybody is aware of [early application rounds],” Nondorf told The Post. “Everyone, everywhere uses all the rounds.”

    As more numbers are released, it seems like applications are up across the board (ED/EA and RD). Several that I've been watching are up 20-30%. This is on top of 10-20% increases last year.
    At the same time, the test scores and GPA stats are also going up.

    Theories:
    1. We're seeing the transition from Millennials to Gen Z (Class of 2022 was born in 2000) and the differences between them. IMHO, I think Gen Z is naturally a lot more competitive and academics-oriented.
    2. The economy is better so parents are able to give students more options
    3. The economy is better so Universities have more financial aid to toss around

    Thoughts?

    Here is information for Rice ED: https://news.rice.edu/2019/01/22/record-breaking-number-of-students-apply-at-rice/
    The article states: "Out of a pool of 2,628 Early Decision applicants, 408 students were admitted to the fall 2019 freshman class." That's a 15.5 ED admission rate. Feel free to post. According to the article, Rice received a total of 27,068 applicants for 2018.

    https://news.tulane.edu/news/tulane-sees-record-applications-students-nationwide-apply-university

    "Applications to Tulane have increased more than 65 percent over the past five years, with 41,365 applications arriving this year. The university's selectivity rate, the number of students who apply versus the number of students who are accepted, also improved to just over 13 percent"

    "Early decision applications, which represent students who consider Tulane their first-choice school, also increased by 56 percent over 2017."

    The trend in application increasing is really staggering. Some big schools are seeing enormous increases. UVa, NYU, Boston College, Tulane - each with 35,000-80,000 applications, yet seeing 10%+ increases in the total applicant pool (their EA or ED pool also had big jumps - NYU, Tulane and BC were up 40%-50%+ in EA/ED applicants). Here are some announcements:

    UVA: https://news.virginia.edu/content/decision-day-part-1-uva-releases-early-action-decisions

    NYU: https://www.nyu.edu/about/news-publications/news/2019/january/Applicationsrelease.html

    Boston College: https://bcheights.com/2019/01/21/changed-admissions-policy-increase-applications/

    Tulane: https://news.tulane.edu/news/tulane-sees-record-applications-students-nationwide-apply-university

    It's interesting to see that Boston College will be switching from EA to ED next year, pointing to the Common App driving huge volumes but now BC is looking to "improve selectivity and yield." https://www.bc.edu/bc-web/bcnews/campus-community/announcements/early-decision.html

    I'm so glad that BC didn't have binding ED this year. I only applied there because a friend toured the campus last year and she thought it was a good fit for me. I sent my enrollment deposit to BC last week.

    I applied ED to Vanderbilt but didn't get in (still curious to see what their ED stats will be - guessing they wait until their EDII is complete before releasing the numbers)

    Choosing one school for ED is tough - do you choose a reach school knowing that your chances are low (but better than RD chances) or a school that is likely a fit but getting accepted will prevent you from knowing if a reach school would be possible.Frustrating!

    Florida State admitted 19,230 of 57,000 early notification applicants (33.7%). Total applications increased 11.9 %, with OOS increasing 41%. OOS admission rate was 19.5%.

    ^ nope. 57000 is the total applications received up to this date... not early action applications. You can't calculate anything from that article.

    They expect only 6200 to enroll and yet they've already admitted 19k... and they still have to admit regular decision... yikes. What is the yield? 15%.

    Its early notification, as I said. There's a separate deadline, so not that different from early "action." The stats are the stats. There's a stat for the admissions through the early notification deadline, and there will be a stat for overall admissions later.

    ^ no. The deadline for early was Nov 1. Not January 31.

    They included apps after the deadline to make the numbers look better. They provided no early app number info. The app count is a total of early and regular. For all we know they received 20k early apps and the early rate was 100%.
