Early Admission Plan Changes for the Class of 2021
Many colleges and universities have begun updating their websites for the Class of 2021 (Fall 2017) admission cycle. While we expect the activity to continue into the late summer, several of the changes we've observed are worth noting.
In particular, roughly 20 schools have introduced changes to the early admission plans available to you this fall. Unsurprisingly, the vast majority have added binding early decision options, including the University of Chicago (Early Decision 1/2), Wake Forest and Wellesley (Early Decision 2) and Tulane (replaced Single Choice Early Action with Early Decision). Several also introduced/refined their Early Action programs, including Texas A&M (a new Early Action option for engineering applicants) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (revamped). On the flip side, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo eliminated Early Decision.
If you're considering early admission, be sure to check out our list as it may impact how you decide to apply this fall. Note for our subscribers: the data has already been incorporated into the product, so all you have to do to see how it impacts your plan is re-run College Kickstart.
