GWU ED 1 Class of 2018!

<p>britishbelle how can you verify this...</p>

<p>My college counselor called today</p>

<p>If that is true I am really worried.</p>

<p>I have a hard time believing this information is credible simply because no one posted about getting an email yesterday, nor did GW post about it until today.</p>

<p>Yeah I haven't heard of anyone getting that email yesterday. That info doesn't sound accurate</p>

<p>I mean....ok?</p>

<p>I definitely believe there was an increase in applicants, though. Explains the delay.</p>

<p>I wonder if the acceptance rate will be the same considering the increase in applicants. Perhaps they'll spring for a larger class size...</p>

<p>Keep in mind another reason there could be the delay could be because of the fact that gwu pushed back there ED deadline this year due to common app problems.</p>

<p>What is the ED acceptance rate normally? I'm getting too many different answers.</p>

<p>I believe it's around 40%</p>

<p>Yes, it makes perfect sense to me that they needed more time since the deadline was pushed back. Really, the turnaround time on these applications was very short. GWU's early admit rate the past two years was 40% and 38% percent for 2013 and 2012 respectively according to the NY Times.</p>

<p>Accepted OMG</p>

<p>Accepted i cant believe it!!!!!</p>

<p>Accepted! So excited.</p>

<p>Accepted... I can't believe it! I am so excited...</p>
