ED1 and EA1. EA1 coming out a whole month earlier!


EA1 decisions this early are unexpected.

WPI announced ED1 and EA decision on 12/14 or 12/15 last year.

Being test-blind, GPA/Rank/Rigor plays a big role in admissions. Not sure if that would allow them to process applications faster?

On a side note, according to CDS, 56% of admitted had 4.0 GPA.


wpi is out! Son in with 22K per year merit. He applied EA. No email yet but portal is updated.

Deferred. Expected as UW GPA is 3.7 and WPI is test-blind.

Daughter accepted with $30k per year of scholarships!


Same here.
Applied EA, my DS was deferred.

Test-blind does not work for the students who attend a competitive HS.
SAT 1510 (M770 E740). There are many 1600 at his HS.
2 APs last year, 5 APs this year.
In State,
UW GPA 3.7
No Scholarship is needed.

Based on his HS statistics, he was expected to be accepted. Sad…

I know. By April with UCs and other decisions, not sure how he will react even if he is accepted.

Congratulations! Is that more than one scholarship? That is fantastic.

S22 accepted! It’s nice to know the Net Price at the same time as acceptance. Never visited WPI - we’re planning an on campus tour in Feb.


Does anyone know how to negotiate the financial package? I get accepted with $27k per year scholarships, but it doesn’t meet my previously expected net price.
