I’m writing today to address a topic that can often be confusing for a group of our applicants who applied to ND in the Restrictive Early Action round. Our office released our decisions in mid-December, and for many, this yielded a definitive decision – admit or deny. But for a number of students, this meant receiving more ambiguous news – a deferred decision.
Six thousand and twenty students applied for consideration under the University’s Restricted Early Action program. Early applications were up 10 percent over last year.
Notre Dame has admitted 1,610 Early Action Applicants to the Class of 2020. 5,321 students were reviewed under the University’s Restricted Early Action program. Early Applications were up 21% over last year.
This fall approximately 2,015 members of Notre Dame’s newest class will be arriving on campus. They were selected from a record pool of 18,157 applicants. Academically, the median incoming first-year student is in the top one percent of the nation in either high school performance and/or on national testing and have exceptional records of leadership and service.
