Early Decision Schools That Double Admission Odds

Posted in Your College List, Early Admission, Class of 2026

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 Bucknell University, roughly 60% of the Class of 2025 was admitted through Early Decision, and the admission rate was 73% vs. 31% for those who applied via Regular Decision.  Or at Bates College in Maine, roughly 80% of the incoming class was admitted through Early Decision and the admission rate was 46% vs. 10% 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.
