Changes for the 2018-2019 Admissions Season

Every year the admissions landscape shifts as colleges react to the past season and the changing practices of top colleges. There are a number of notable changes for this season, a few of which have been recently announced.

Washington University in St. Louis and the College of William and Mary are adding an Eary Decision II, following a growing number of schools beginning to offer this option. Not only does ED II help increase a school's yield, it also gives students more time to decide on their first choice and make their applications as competitive as possible.

Baylor will be adding Early Decision, and Penn State and Virginia Tech will be adding Early Action in the fall, giving students more options to choose from.

Wash U is adding a supplementary essay this year, making it more difficult for students who want to apply without doing any additional work. Now, they will need to demonstrate their interest by writing a dedicated essay for Wash U. See this article for more details.
