Discus: Parents Forum: 2004 Archive - Part 2: SCEA vs ED: How did it come out?
By Idler (Idler) on Friday, August 20, 2004 - 10:23 am: Edit

At this time last year, much was made about Yale and Stanford deciding to switch to single choice early action from early decision, which,coupled with Harvard's switch from EA to SCEA a year earlier, seemed to introduce a new element of uncertainty to the admissions process which would radiate across the ranks. I wonder how it came out: I've seen no specific numbers, except for the well-discussed surge in Yale's SCEA apps. Did yields rise or fall? Did these institutions make unusual use of wait lists? Did stats of accepted students rise or fall? Or did it have no significant effect?
