The status check is now updated and the wave of freshman February admit decisions (roughly 1,800) that I discussed earlier are now showing up on the site. Please remember that this is a small group of admits who meet the EA criteria used in our December admits (and are mainly RD applicants due to this fact), and remember, I cannot comment/discuss specific decisions on this blog.
As I posted a few days ago, there are no set "EA critieria levels", as it is a review of the combination of grades, rigor and test scores, so please do not ask what EA SAT/ACT, GPA or rigor criteria is. There will be a few EA deferred students who are admitted in this round, mostly because of an increase in their academic standing (new test scores) or if we needed to re-review their other academic information due to another issue (change in course schedule, issue with a transcript and self-reported grades, etc.)
Do not panic if you have not been admitted in this wave, as we still have a number of files to read and numerous of decisions to make. Final decisions will be made by roughly the end of March, so try to be patient as we finish up the process over the next month or so.
As I said in my previous post, I have not run the mid-ranges on these admitted students, but they should be fairly similar to the EA admitted students.
