Early Admission Rates

The 2020-2021 academic year has certainly been unlike any other, and college admissions are no exception. The class of 2025 has faced an unprecedented number of changes, including canceled SAT/ACT dates and extended admissions deadlines. Many students also made the shift to temporary online learning arrangements and faced cancellations and restrictions around extracurricular activities.

So, how have these changes impacted college admissions rates? Some schools have had record-setting applicant pools, while overall applications are down compared to this time last year. To learn how the schools on your best-fit list fared, check out our chart with early admission rates below:

Often, instead of an acceptance or rejection, applicants are deferred – meaning their application will be reviewed again within the regular decision pool. Deferred students will have to wait until March or April for a decision on their application.

If you were deferred in the early round, here’s what a deferral means and how you can improve your chances of admission in the regular round. At IvyWise we work with students to counsel them through their deferral decisions, including how to approach it and what their application strategy should be for the regular round. Contact us today for more information on our Deferral Consultation.
