哪些大学可以早申?

美国一共有两千多所四年制大学,其中一千四百多所大学拥有权威认证。一般来说,大多数大学对考生的入学要求仅仅是高中毕业拥有一定程度的GPA并且交付学费。只有最优秀的一百来所大学对考生精挑细捡。自2013年以来,绝大多数优秀大学以及几乎所有名校都开始允许考生通过Common Application(网上共同申请平台)递交大学申请。由于Common Application统一和简化了大学申请过程,导致高质量考生对更多数量的优秀大学提交申请,竞争日趋白热化。这样一来,实力强的考生们在发榜之后经常会拥有多所优秀大学的录取通知书。因为考生只能从数个大学录取通知书中选取一所大学入学,发出录取通知书的大学便很难预期到底有多少录取的优秀考生会前来报到。

一所大学的本科教育是否辉煌, 在很大程度上取决于其生源的质量。因此每所优秀大学都非常重视自己新生群体当中优等生的百分比。然而除了像HYPMS这样最有名的几所世界名校之外,绝大多数优秀大学都不能保证自己录取的优等考生多数会前来报到。为了解决这个问题,早申计划便应运而生。

拥有早申计划的大学基本上都集中在US News大学前100名和文理学院前40名。早申计划可以分为两类。ED(提前录取)和 ED2(第二次提前录取)录取的考生都别无选择,必须就读于录取的大学。ED的申请截止日期通常在11月1日(少数是10月15日或11月15日),于12月15日左右发榜。而ED2的申请截止日期通常与RD(普通录取)相同,发榜日期或提前或与RD发榜日期相同。 由于在ED和ED2录取的优秀考生全部都肯定会前来入学,大学一般会在ED和ED2录取40%-50%的新生以保证录取新生的基本质量,其录取率常常两倍于RD。另一类早申并不绑定录取结果,叫做EA(提前非绑定录取)或single choice EA(唯一私校提前非绑定录取)。这类早申的截止日期与ED类似,通常在11月1日(少数是10月15日或11月15日),并于12月15日左右发榜。由于录取结果不绑定,EA在录取率上不见得有很大优势(各大学情况不同),但是由于考生积极向大学示好并捷足先登被大学招生官优先审阅,在录取机会上也会只赚不赔。
