Boost Your Odds 50% With These Early Action Schools

Posted in Your College List, Early Admission, Class of 2025

earlyactionLooking for a way to enhance admission odds without obligating yourself to attend?  Here's a list of colleges with early action admission rates that are at least 50% higher than their regular decision admission rates.  

Unlike Early Decision, Early Action is non-binding, so it nearly always works to your advantage.  And as the list shows, this advantage can be meaningful if you're a competitive applicant...all for simply applying 45-60 days earlier than normal.  

With most early action deadlines occurring in early November, the time is now to take a closer look.

Early Decision Schools That Double Admission Odds

Posted in Your College List, Early Admission, Class of 2025

earlydecisionLooking for a way to enhance admission odds? Here's a list of schools with early decision admission rates that are at least twice as high as their regular decision admission rates.  

Because Early Decision is a binding commitment, it only makes sense if you're a competitive applicant, affordability isn't an issue, and you're absolutely certain it's the school for you. But as the list shows, there can be a meaningful advantage in applying this way if you are.  For example, at NYU, roughly 67% of the Class of 2023 was admitted through Early Decision, and the admission rate was 28% vs. 14% for those who applied via Regular Decision.  Or at Bates College in Maine, roughly 70% of the incoming class was admitted through Early Decision and the admission rate was 42% vs. 9% for those who applied via Regular Decision.  These are differences too big to ignore.

Note: most early decision deadlines occur in early November, so the time is now to consider if it makes sense for you. Click here for more information about early admission, and here to find out how College Kickstart can help you take full advantage.
