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.

Notable Admission Rate Changes for the Class of 2023

Posted in Class of 2024, Class of 2023

surprised-student

Given how sophisticated colleges have become in recruiting applicants, it's dangerous to rely on old admissions data.  

We've taken a look at our coverage universe and identified schools with notable admission rate differences between the Class of 2023 and the Class of 2022. In addition to providing the admission rates, we've included some commentary to explain why as well as a link back to the source article.

This year's notable changes are primarily about falling admission rates with a smattering of rising rates at BYU and three University of California campuses.  For institutions with declining admission rates, much of this is attributable to year over year application growth and declines in admitted students.  While some institutions admitted fewer students to compensate for overenrollment the previous year, we suspect others have done so as a result of admitted higher proportions of applicants through early decision/early action programs. 

Depending on how you categorize schools, the admission rate change may be enough to turn a likely into a target or target into a reach.  Regardless, take a moment to review the list—the last thing anyone needs at this point is a surprise!

College Kickstart subscribers: Class of 2023 admission rates have already been incorporated into the latest release of College Kickstart.

Interested in preparing for one of the most promising and in-demand career paths of our time? Look no further than Data Science!

An up-and-coming field, the term “Data Scientist” was coined as recently as 2008 and ranked the #1 Best Job in America by Glassdoor in 2016, 2017, and 2018. Studying "big data" will teach you how to ask important, real-world questions, collect data, organize information, translate results into solutions, and communicate your findings in ways that will effect positive change.

Using information compiled from U.S. News, Tech Republic, Discover Data Science, and the Data Science Degree Programs Guide, here's a list of schools with strong Data Science programs for undergrads. Some schools have a bit of information after the name indicating that the school only offers a minor, certificate program, concentration, or degree track in Data Science. Additionally, Data Science programs are called different things by different schools, including “Statistics and Data Science,” “Data Analytics,” and “Business Analytics.”

We’ve organized the schools from least to greatest admission rate, and we’ve also provided links to each school’s Data Science program to help you explore.
