EA This Year

<p>This has probably been answered in a previous thread, but I was wondering your thoughts on if Harvard's abolishment of EA for next year will effect their admittance for EA this year?</p>

<p>Without knowing for sure, I would expect that they will accept a smaller number than this year - about 805 for the class of 2010, compared to 885 for the class of 2009.</p>

<p>Harvard and Stanford each filled about 44% of their classes from the early pool this year, compared to about 49% at Yale and Princeton respectively.</p>

<p>Of course these schools also accepted varying numbers of early applicants from the RD pool who had been deferred after originally applying SCEA (in the case of Stanford, Yale and Harvard) or ED (in the case of Princeton.)</p>
