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.

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.
Accepted. 20k Presidential Scholarship.
