Northwestern University Class of 2022 Early Decision Stats

this year.

And to all those folks who don’t appreciate the benefit of applying in the Early Decision or Early Action round, just realize that there will be only around 46% of seats left in Northwestern’s Class of 2022 for Regular Decision applicants to fill. And this kind of data isn’t unique to Northwestern University — it’s commonplace at just about all highly selective colleges. Perhaps the folks who don’t appreciate the benefit of applying under a school’s Early Decision or Early Action policies would be well served to play a game of musical chairs. See how many folks are circling those few chairs that are left in the Regular Decision round and then tell us there is no advantage in applying Early. We’ll be waiting for the music to stop. You just might be without a chair.
