Brown Early applications reached a record high this year, with 3,086 students applying via Early Decision. The 3,086 applicants marked a 2% increase from last year’s Early Decision pool at Brown. Last year, 3,010 students applied Early to Brown. According to “The Brown Daily Herald,” minority applicants comprise about a third of the total Early Decision applicant pool to Brown this year, and that’s a figure that has been consistent for a few years now at the university.
According to an article on Brown Early applications in “The Brown Daily Herald,” “International early decision applicants comprise nearly 13 percent of the early decision pool, an increase of 25 applications over last year, with 409 international students applying early to the class of 2018, Miller said. Applications to the Brown-Rhode Island School of Design Dual-Degree program rose 54 percent this year, at 77 applicants this cycle as compared to 50 last cycle, Miller said. But he said this increase is not significant, because the class of 2016 early cycle had 70 applicants to the program, so the “50 was more of an anomaly.”
Early applications were on the rise at Yale University, Dartmouth College, and the University of Pennsylvania as well this year. Figures for the other Ivies are still being released.
