Wow, 25% acceptance rate for early action and early decision.
NU had a 28% acceptance rate for fall 2015.
What does this mean for all in admission rate?

Admissions update: Fall 2016
For high school seniors, this is an important time of year. Although regular decision results have not been released for the incoming class of Fall 2016, early decision and early action have been announced. These decisions are major indicators of Northeastern's reputation and applicants' desire to be #NUready.

Early Action




Early Decision (ED): This is the second year that Northeastern University offered the ED option to applicants. ED means a binding agreement to attend the university. Typically, only students who strongly believe NU is their first choice apply ED.
Early Action (EA): non-binding admission.
