U.S. College ED/EA Admission Results for Class of 2016

Posted on: 2011-Dec 15, last updated on: 2011- Dec 28

 

Since the end of November some schools started to send out the ED / EA admission notice. Till now, many universities have sent the ED / EA admission notice. Collecting the information from the official college websites and various media reports, combined with last year's data, we did our analysis and calculation to produce the following table. We also added a link of each school's information page to facilitate students who do not have much knowledge of the college to get basic information of that college. There will be more data released from media these days. We will update promptly. Please stay tuned with us.

In addition, we also noticed that the application number for several schools reported by various media are not consistent(the difference usually is less than 1%). We adopted the following principles: if the school's official website has reported the data, we'll use the data from the college website; if the same media released different data, we'll use the most recent one; if the discrepancy comes from two different media, we'll use the data from the source with more authority.
