美國大學宣布延長 RD 錄取通知日期!

 

今年申請大學的學生在申請過程中經歷了許多和以往不同的政策,而現在,部分大學也宣布將延後錄取通知的時間。

 

Harvard College 才剛宣布,今年收到了 57,000 位申請者,比往年多了 42%,他們需要更充足的時間將全部的因素考量進去,確保決定錄取的過程是非常謹慎的,因此,他們將錄取通知日期延後到 4 月 6 日。

造成今年許多學生踴躍地申請搶手的大學的原因之一是,政策調整為 test optional,往年學生要進排名較前面的學校,SAT 分數平均至少需達到 1540 分,這對很多不擅長考試的學生相對不利,但今年,因為疫情的緣故,許多大學調整入學申請政策,將考試改為 test optional 或是 test blind,讓學生有了可以嘗試看看的念頭,挑戰錄取機會,使得 EA/ED 以及 RD 的申請率大幅提升。
