It’s late January, so that means the Colgate Office of Admission is knee-deep in application review. It is common for colleges to compare statistics on applications from year to year, and our initial review of this year’s pool indicates many similarities to last year’s. While we have a slight increase in Early Decision applications, our overall number is even. The trend of an increase in international applicants continues.
Our staff meets weekly for Early Decision II committee—and each week the Colgate Class of 2016 grows by a handful of talented students from all over the world. This week we admitted students from 11 states and one other country.
Students can change their regular application to Early Decision II up until March 1. We review ED applications as soon as they are complete, so students will hear from us much sooner than our regular notification of late March.
Check your portal account to be sure your admission and financial aid applications are complete. And as always, if you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact your regional dean.
