  • 27 percent of the schools admitted 5 percent or less (vs. 44 percent in 2018)
  • 7 percent admitted no one (vs. 12 percent in 2018)

Early Decision Schools That Double Admission Odds

Posted in Your College List, Early Admission, Class of 2024

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 Washington University in St. Louis, roughly 60% of the incoming class is admitted through Early Decision, and the admission rate is 36% vs. 11% for those who applied via Regular Decision.  That's a difference 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.

The Early Admission Advantage (Part 1 of 3)

Posted in Early Admission, Class of 2024

PART I: The Fundamentals

early admission advantage

Simply put, early admission should always be considered as part of your college plan.

Why?  Because early action and early decision programs can be tremendously useful in helping a competitive candidate enhance admission odds.  By submitting your application early, you'll hear back earlier and in most instances improve your chances for admission.  Better yet, if you're accepted early, you'll be able to avoid the cost and effort of applying to schools of lower interest on your list.

In this three part series, we'll explore the fundamentals, when/how to take advantage of them, and where early admission is offered.  Read on for Part I.
