You'll get your admission decision and financial aid award earlier than candidates who apply through Regular Decision, and you'll be able to enjoy the rest of your senior year and begin making plans for your transition to our campus in Burlington.Link to this FAQ
When you apply Early Decision, you are competing against a smaller pool of applicants overall: approximately 400 vs the 5,000+ that will apply through the Regular Decision option. The rate of admission for Early Decision applicants is higher than it is for other applicants. Typically, more than one-third of our incoming classes are admitted through Early Decision.Link to this FAQ
