Early College Acceptances for the Class of 2018

There has been a lot of buzz in recent years about how applying Early Action and Early Decision can improve one’s chances of admission to a variety of competitive colleges and universities. There can often be a significant difference in how offices of undergraduate admission review early versus regular decision applications.

This year, under the guidance of Director of College Counseling, Joseph Runge, CDS had a significant increase in seniors applying and being accepted early. The admit rate is 91.5% for our early applications. A small sampling of some of the out-of-state/in-state acceptances is as follows:

Case Western University

Florida State University

Fordham University (2)

GA Institute of Technology

Georgetown University

Lafayette College

Loyola Marymount University

Miami University

New College of Florida

Northeastern University

Ohio State University

Penn State University

Purdue University (2)

SMU (2)

Syracuse University

Trinity University

Tulane University

University of Maryland

University of Richmond (2)

University of San Francisco (5)

We expect the seniors to have more good news to report as the admissions decisions roll in throughout the spring. Our Senior Patriots continue to make us proud as they head toward this next stage in their academic lives.
