Official Bowdoin Decision page class of 2025

Official class of 2025 Bowdoin decisions!

I was lucky enough to match with Bowdoin through QuestBridge on December 1st!! Bowdoin was my first choice and absolute dream school, as you can tell by my username, and I was planning on rolling my application to ED if I didn’t match. If you have any questions feel free to ask! Good luck to everybody who applied ED. I really hope you all get in. GO POLAR BEARS!!!

Thank you! Love your username <3

deferred from ED I at Bowdoin.
4.67 weighted GPA, 4.15 UW GPA (both on 4.0 scale).
School doesn’t do rank but I’m in the top 5%
lots of extracurriculars (probably 9/10)
1450 SAT (could only take it 1x because of corona/test cancellations)
recs: strong overall. 9/10
Bowdoin supplement: 6-7/10
common app 9/10
applied as political science (1) /history major (2)

Nice stats.congrats.

Deferred. Oh well…

do you think applying as a political science major hurt my chance at admission because it’s such a popular major?

Daughter admitted ED on 12/11. She is a supported athlete with the following:

33 ACT Superscore
4.0 Unweighted
740 Biology SAT2
5 for AP USHist and Bio
No class rank
Strong recs and essays
Good (but not spectacular) extracuriculars outside of sports
High level athlete

Great to have the admissions decision behind us. She is excited to experience coastal Maine and fortunately for her, loves cold winters. Good luck to everyone.


what are the chances of acceptance after deferral from Bowdoin?

Hi. Did your daughter do the Bowdoin interview?

i didnt have the chance to because the interview deadline came up so fast.

When was the ED II decision date last year?
