UW madison.. what’s happening

I have a friend who is currently a college senior, 36 ACT, in 2 varsity sports, and other extracurriculars as well. She applied ED to madison i think and still hasn’t heard if she got in yet! We live in a state that has state reciprocity with wisconsin for context, but does anyone know why madison hasn’t accepted/denied people like her yet? I know several people with significantly less extracurriculars, worse grades, etc who have gotten in, what’s happening!

Greetings halleparker,

Exceptional all-around students are a dime a dozen. UW Madison is a large college and cannot accept everyone. I know people who have received acceptance letters from some Ivy League colleges but not state colleges. Read this article below for more context:
