After yesterday’s celebratory sendoff, the Admissions Department put out stats for the early decision round of applications for CC/SEAS 2014. According to a statement from Admissions Director Jessica Marinaccio, applications for early decision increased by only 2%, to 2995; only 631 were accepted, for an admit rate of 21%.

As for geographical diversity, “the CC and SEAS class includes students from 41 states including Alabama, Hawaii, Kansas, Montana, New Mexico, and South Carolina as well as some of our major market areas (New York metro area, California, Massachusetts, Florida, Maryland and Illinois).” Students from 25 other countries were also accepted, including “Bahrain, Belarus, Ethiopia, Greece, Jordan and Vietnam.” Our only request for the new Columbians: start suffering from senioritis as soon as you can acquire it.
