    @collegemomjam The Notre Dame Office of Undergraduate Admissions will be making the REA 2014 announcement some time next week:

    Anyone have any idea what percent of deferred applicants end up getting accepted? Would it be higher than than the overall acceptance rate?

    I don't know for sure but I think because ND does reject some early action applicants, I think the deferred students do pretty well during the regular round.

    @ethan75 Notre Dame admitted, in round numbers, 21% of REA applicants, deferred 19% to the regular decision pool, offered HCC/ND Gateway to a select few students and rejected approximately 60% last year. REA admission Information for the ND Class of 2024 should come out this week, if the Office of Undergraduate Admissions continues this tradition under the new leadership.

    Statistically, it doesn't make much of a difference in the regular pool between REA deferred and RD applicants - respective acceptance/waitlist/rejection rates are about the same for both groups in the Regular Decision round. ND RD admision rate for the Class of 2023 was 13.3% last admission cycle, plus students put on the waitlist, plus again a select few students were offered admission to HCC/ND Gateway from the Reglar Decision round (limited to Regular Decision applicants).

    This is my second student admitted to ND. My Class of 2022 daughter had slightly lower stats (33 ACT, same GPA, not NMSF). My advice to my kids was to find a way to differentiate themselves from all the other kids with high test scores and strong GPAs. I am convinced now it was the supplements that helped my kids stand out--most of the kids who apply are all so well qualified. I felt my daughter's were excellent, and her personality really came through. My son's were reflective of his personality, quite different from my daughter's. They each managed to convey who they are through the subjective portion of the app, and they especially used the brief extracurricular section of the common app as a chance to describe their activities with a little humor. And being a legacy doesn't hurt. Of my three ND roommates (who also married ND grads), all three of our kids who applied were accepted. These kids are highly qualified on their own merits, and very easily could've been accepted without the legacy boost. Additionally, my 2022 daughter is doing very well academically, which I imagine didn't hurt either.

    @Libby1901 Congratulations! Two student admits out of two legacy applications in the family is an excellent track record.

    It reminded my of the leading paragraph in a recent article of the Observer:
    "Notre Dame sometimes feels like a family affair. We all know a fifth-generation Domer whose first words were “Go Irish!” :-)

    Has you son decided on his preferred ND Engineering Major choice?

    @hpcsa Thank you! It certainly is a family affair, which might influence my son to choose another school!! My Dad also went to ND, so he is feeling the pressure of all that history. He isn't 100% certain where he will end up. Waiting on a few other schools and NROTC scholarship before making the call (so hard for his parents who think the choice is an easy one ;) Wherever he ends up, he wants to study Aerospace Engineering.

    @Libby1901 It was the same for our DD, currently a Junior Engineering Student at Notre Dame. She went through the same process as your son during college selection, finally decided on Notre Dame and now is extremely happy that she did. ND's COE and alumni network are just outstanding. Several of her initial choices will likely become options for Graduate School again, which is as it should be. Again, congratulations to your family and a Merry Christmas!
