Early Action decisions are now available online! For students who were deferred, please understand that this is not a denial decision. We want to be able to have a more in-depth review of you, including short essays, activities, recommendations, etc. Please be sure to read the deferred student FAQ page before commenting on here.
While official statistics will come out early next week about the admitted freshman, here are some limited statistics on this group:
Quick Early Action Numbers*

-Academic Rigor is based on an overall core course review, but this gives a good glance at the challenge of our admitted student’s curriculum.
* Please Remember that these numbers are mid-ranges, not minimums.
If you have questions about your specific decision, please do not post them on this blog. As well, do not give out or request personal academic information in your post, as we would then need to delete these posts. We are not able to answer questions about individual students here because we will generally not have your information in front of us and we cannot disclose individual student information in a comment. I would recommend talking with both your family and high school counselor first, then reviewing this previous post on suggestions about how to react to an EA decision, and finally reading the FAQ’s available from your Status page.
Please be patient, be nice and be courteous.
Have a great weekend and go Dawgs!
