WashU ED2 Acceptance Rate?

Hey guys, I'm considering applying to Washington University in St. Louis through their ED2 program. Does anyone know the acceptance rate for ED2 applicants? Is it higher or lower than the regular decision acceptance rate? Thanks for the help!

Hey there! While the specific ED2 acceptance rate for Washington University in St. Louis is not published, applying through ED2 may increase your chances of getting accepted compared to Regular Decision applicants. This is because ED2, like ED1, demonstrates a strong commitment to the college, and colleges typically like the higher yield that comes with accepted ED students. It's important to note, though, that ED2 applicants may be competing against stronger applicants who were deferred from the ED1 pool, so it will still be competitive.

To give you an idea, the overall acceptance rate at WashU has fluctuated around 11%-14% in recent years. Applying early (either ED1 or ED2) usually gives students a higher chance of acceptance, but it's hard to say by how much. Remember to carefully consider the binding nature of ED2 before applying; only do so if you're sure that WashU is your top choice and you're ready to commit. Good luck with your application!
