The Los Angeles Times
From Stanford to Harvard and Yale
and other elite schools around the
United States, admission committees
are now gathering to pore over applica-
tions for September's incoming class.
With one catch: much of the class of
2001 has already been picked.
The nation's top private colleges and
universities are accepting more stu-
dents than ever through an early admis-
sions process completed months before
the traditional spring deadline.
Eager to lock in the best and brightest
from high school ranks, Harvard already
has offered 55 percent of next fall's slots
to early applicants, while the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
Princeton and Brown have accepted
enough to fill nearly half their incoming
classes.
The University of Pennsylvania,
Williams and Yale already have select-
ed a third of their first-year students
and dozens of other schools accepted
- and received commitments from -
20 percent of
their incoming
classes, all by
Christmas. IS th
Though high
school students e
have had the make at
option of apply-
ing "early deci-
sion" to some Da
elite colleges for Dea
decades, the use
of such programs
has skyrocketed in the past two years
- with many other schools scrambling
to join the faster-paced admissions
game. Stanford only last year joined the
ranks of schools inviting high. school
students to apply early decision.
"It's very competitive out there and
you do what you have to do to not get left
behind," said John Slaughter, president of
Occidental College in Los Angeles.
Admission through early decision
has benefits for colleges and students.
The schools solidify their incoming
classes with early picks of top talent.
And students who have their hearts set
on a particular college can get a speedy
reply, avoiding months of nail-biting
awaiting word of their fate.
But early admissions come at a price.
Most colleges require that appli-
cants - and their parents - sign a
binding commitment: If admitted
early, the student will enroll in the fall.
No second thoughts. No more shop-
ping around. No backing out.
That troubles some high school
counselors as seniors get swept up in
the competition for early openings -
perhaps before they have fully
researched what school is best for them.
"We've found a lot of them want to
apply early, they just don't know
where," said Mark Hatch, director of
college counseling at the private
Marlborough School in Los Angeles.
"Students and their parents are being
sucked in, thinking that early decision
is the way to go or they might miss out."
Colleges report a record number of
early applicants this past fall, cement-

when Harvard accepted enough to fill
an astounding 60 percent of its incom-
ing class.
."You hear so much about it at col e,
nights, I wanted to do it somewhere'
said Jama Adams, senior class presidemt
at Hollywood's Immaculate Heart Hig
She decided on Yale after visiting tfe
campus and sent in her one early ap l
cation there - because it's a comrn-
ment, the system only gives the studeft
a single shot.
In mid-January, Jama learned h r
application - like most - vas
deferred to the regular admissios
cycle. "For me, it was frustrati ,
because I wasted it," se said of r
chance to snag an early place. '
Counselors say the progran has
pushed some success-driven studi4 ,
egged on by their parents, to prepa
earlier for college admissions. sly

mores, visit campuses'as juniors and ;y
to sort it all out over summer brea '

of Admissions, ular applicaV'n
omona College "They swear
their undying
love and we promise to give them an
early answer," said Bruce Poch, dean pf
admissions at California's Pomopa
College, which admits 20 percent of its
first-year students early. "Is that really a
decision you can make at 17?"
Poch and other critics also worry that
early decision is mostly for the affluet,
because those who rely on financial aid
need to compare multiple offers to deter-
mine which college they can afford.
But even Poch concedes such pio-
grams are "spreading ... like a comMu-
nicable disease."
While Stanford was adopting its first
early decision option in the fall of 1995,
places such as Yale and Princeton for
the first time required the applicants to
make binding commitments.
Stanford, which just last week fin-
ished picking 38 percent of its incom-
ing class by early decision, felt it was
losing top-notch students to competi-
tors, said James Montoya, the dean of
admissions.
"A significant number ... indicad
that Stanford would have been their
first choice had the university of1 red
an early program," Montoya said.
Some institutions that offer the higlest
percentage of slots to early applicans:
California Institute of Technology (0
percent), Harvard (55 percent), MIT 49
percent) - operate a different, nonbind-
ing program called "early action."
These schools accept students early,
but give them until May 1 to decide
between their offer and later ones from
other colleges during the regular admis-
sions cycle.
