Harvard ditches early admissions

Posted in Student Loan News at 2:11 PM by Joe From Boston

You’ve probably heard about this already on the national news, but in case you haven’t, read this article.

Harvard has cancelled its early admissions program. This is actually great news for students, because early admissions students favored the wealthy students who could afford tutors, private school, etc. Now Harvard will see all candidates in one pool, and will be better able to pick and choose students in one batch, not two.

I’m hoping this causes a snowball effect and that other schools will follow suit. Early admission really isn’t for most people, as most schools demand automatic acceptance if you’re approved early. At least when I was 18, I wasn’t ready to choose a college in December of my senior year!
