<p>Yale early apps went down 13%!!! What are the chances Penn’s ED apps fall or experience no significant gain??? On a side note, Stanford’s SCEA went up 5%.</p>


<p>I really hope there is a decrease at Penn.</p>

<p>But Brenzel said he would caution observers of the admissions process not to overanalyze or place too much significance on these statistics.</p>

<p>"If you look at early and regular admissions numbers over time, you'll see a certain amount of variation," he said. "Over the last 10 to 15 years, the numbers of applications to the Ivy League schools have been going up pretty much across the board, but there's a tendency to focus a little over much on year-to-year figures."</p>

<p>dude, last year ED apps to Penn jumped 21%.</p>

<p>When will Penn post their statistics?</p>

<p>Hey guys, don't think about this too much. I'm applying to Yale early and those statistics did not make me feel any better. They actually made me feel worse once I started overanalyzing...it may seem good at first that the pool decreased in size, but Yale said it was probably because the low acceptance rate scared people away...that means that fewer underqualified people applied early...making the pool more competitive, concentrated with good candidates...making it harder to get in...ack...time to stop thinking</p>

<p>Penn is doing a good thing by not releasing the data right now</p>

<p>I'm checking the dailypennsylvanian.com everyday, waiting for those statistics.... I LOVE statistics!</p>

<p>Anyway, very surprising about Yale. Maybe a good sign for Penn, or bad (more applied to Penn than other early programs).
We'll see....
I'll be the first to post the stats for Penn when they become available.
So don't worry!</p>

<p>Guys, you have to read the whole thing...</p>

<p>"I have students who are applying to Penn, Brown and Cornell, but who have decided that Harvard, Yale and sometimes even Princeton are out of their reach now," she said. "That's a big change from last year." </p>

<p>Lol. Don't worry....</p>

<p>im not worried at all about these numbers...whatever happens happens.... thought Id throw it out there and see what feedback it got back.</p>

<p>me too getcrunk!</p>

<p>go ahead, just ADD to the stress u crazy kids.</p>

<p>24 dayyyssss</p>

<p>wow. not to freak anyone out but i bet Penn's went up.</p>

<p>I basically agree with jennyanne89, but they're just hopeful that it didn't</p>

<p>Princeton ED apps up 2% for Class of 2011 </p>

<p>I think that about 3600 applied early to Penn.</p>

<p>if you think 3600 applied, that would mean a drop from the 4120 applied last year which means a drop of ....13%!!! I dont think theres any chance Penn had such a significant decrease in apps.</p>

<p>you THINK 3600? what does that mean? did you actually read it somewhere?</p>

<p>(whoa that sounded kind of... harsh... idk. didnt mean to tho.)</p>

<p>It was a GUESS.</p>


<p>I got all excited.

<p>It should be posted soon on dailypennsylvanian.com...I dont know why they cant just release this info.</p>
