even lower chances for us rd types?

<p>Any idea what will happen with the increased numbers of SCEA candidates - will Stanford take a larger % of the freshman class early, or defer a larger % leaving even fewer spots for us RD applicants?</p>

<p>I think they'll just reduce the admit percent for us SCEA candidates, and reject some more as well cos i read somewhere that they reject 50% of their SCEA applicants</p>

<p>Does Stanford accepts the Jan SAT score, if someone is re-taking the test?</p>

<p>do you mean that they will accept 50% of SCEA applicants? Isnt it more like 20%??</p>

<p>Yeah, I have a hard time believing it's 50%</p>

<p>Perhaps he/she meant 50% for CCers.</p>

<p>Of the 50% not rejected, around 20% are accepted and the remainder is deferred.</p>

<p>do you know what the admissions is for reqruited athletes</p>

<p>if not stanford, yo could always go to CAL</p>

<p>i believe she meant that stanford takes in half of its incoming class early (total class size = 1600; early applicants = about 800 of them)</p>

<p>I meant recruited**</p>

<p>they really take half the class early?</p>

<p>well, since SCEA isn't binding, but with Stanford's prestige, 88% early people matriculated, while only 50something% RDs matriculated (the majority of them opted for HYP in the end). They know they'll have a high yield rate with the early crop. In total they accept 2600 people I believe. It's the same thing with other SCEA schools like Yale and ED schools like Penn and Columbia, where the "magic" 48% of the freshman class were earlies.</p>

<p>I did some math the other day: while early applicants compose 20% of their entire applicant pool, they make up about 33% of the total acceptances.</p>
