CC, SEAS class of 2021 sets record for largest number of early decision applicants

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions received 4,086 early decision applications to Columbia College and the School of Engineering and Applied Science this year, once again setting a record for the largest number of early decision applicants in Columbia history.

The number of early decision applicants rose by 16 percent from last year, when the office received 3,520 applications. At the time, last year’s pool was just 4.4 percent larger than the 3,373 applicants in 2014.

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid mailed early decision acceptance letters to new members of the class of 2021 on Monday afternoon and will release online decisions Monday night at 6 p.m ET.
