Admissions Update

Our admission prospects are looking very good as the enrollment management team is reviewing a robust set of regular decision applications that were due January 7.  The combined total of early and regular decision applications reached 14,945 applications, an increase of 4% over last year.  From the pool of admitted students we are targeting an enrollment of 1275 students for the incoming freshman class.


The early applicant pool had a strong showing with 4,677 applications received by the November 1 deadline. This pool included applicants taking advantage of the Early Action and the newly implemented Early Decision options.  The combined total of early applicants represented 9% more than last year's single Early Action pool. We were pleased with the outcome of the first-ever binding Early Decision option, under which 85 students have deposited.
