Give us a call!
To absolutely no one’s surprise, this was a very competitive year for college applications. With each passing year more applicants pen Early Action and Early Decision love letters to their dream schools. In response, top schools have carried on with their tradition of accepting a very small percentage of these eager applicant pools (but still more than the Regular Decision pool). This year’s influx of Early Action and Early Decision applications has pushed acceptance rates down to some of the lowest numbers we’ve seen, and we expect the trend to continue.
As schools announce their acceptance rates, we will update this list, so make sure to check back! As you may already know, Stanford is no longer releasing these numbers, so the most selective school (up until now) in the country will no longer make the list. Princeton also released preliminary SCEA data, but did not include how many students applied this round.
Here are the EA and ED acceptance rates for some of the country’s most competitive schools in 2019:
If you didn’t receive the news you were hoping for this month, remember that you are in the majority! College admissions is incredibly competitive and getting a rejection or deferral does not mean that you still can’t secure admission to a school that is a great fit for you. Just follow our advice and keep calm. As Dorothy once sang in Wizard of Oz, “Somewhere over the rainbow/ Way up high/ There’s a college that I heard of/ Once in a catalogue.” (There’s a chance we’re remembering part of that wrong.)
P.S. Having trouble keeping track of Regular Decision deadline? They’re all right here!
