Applying Early Action/Early Decision To Your Dream School

Image may contain: possible text that says 'HAPPYNEWYEAR 2020'

Happy New Year and CONGRATULATIONS to those high school seniors who applied early action/early decision and have successfully matched with their dream school. For those of you who may not have been as fortunate, or have been deferred for reconsideration in the spring…keep the faith! It’s not the end of the world! Hopefully, you’ve received strong guidance from your high school counselors and parents in the application process…and applied to a number of great schools that would be an even better fit for you. Consider that there are many reasons for not being admitted. One reason could simply be having submitted an incomplete application.

Yale College admitted 796 students out of a total of 5,777 early action applicants to the class of 2024 this past December. The number marks a 13.8 percent admission rate for early action. Harvard University, Brown University and Cornell University accepted 13.9, 17.5 and 23.8 percent of early action applicants respectively.

These early admissions offers are non-binding, and admitted students usually have until May 1 to reply, but double check with your particular school if you’re unsure.

For those of you who have been deferred for spring consideration…there are things you can and should do until then to strengthen your cause. One of those things is to keep the admissions office apprised of any pertinent activities and successes which will help strengthen your position. Certainly, there are other things you can do as well.

DOTS Educational Consulting is prepared to work with you 1-on-1 to provide you with the attention you deserve. We’ll advise and help you in every aspect of the college admission and application process, but don’t wait until the eleventh hour to ask for help as there’s significant strategizing and time required in developing a highly successful college application.
