Beyond Feb 1st

Looks like our applications are at 6,625 and counting as a few more trickle in with February 1st postmarks. Our growth was mostly among female applicants with an 11% increase compared to only a 1% increase in male applicants.

More to come on the applicant pool in the coming days.


PS - Our Early Action Round 2 letters should mail tomorrow....think your app might be incomplete? Give us a call...still close to 300 have not been reviewed because they are incomplete.

Application Update

As we close in on our application deadline...February 1st....students are still submitting applications at a good clip. Close to 200 applications have been submitted on-line over the weekend and we still have about 30 hours to the deadline. It looks like we will have another record setting year at WPI. With over 6,400 applications so far this year, we will easily exceed last year's total of 6,284. Glad to see that the interest in WPI is remaining high!!



PS - If you applied Early Action Round II, and are waiting on a decision, please remember the notification date this year is February 10th. We hope to have the decisions in the mail by the end of the week.
