Default In The News: Harvard and Princeton to revive Early-Action Program

Harvard University and Princeton University each announced yesterday that they would revive their early-admission programs, allowing applicants who apply by next Nov 15 to get a decision by Dec 15 without having to promise to attend the college if admitted ( different from early-decision ).

The schools' decision was based on the dwindling number of applicants to both colleges, who chose to study at other schools which utilised the early-decision system because Harvard and Princeton did not offer an early-application system. The two schools revoked the system in 2008 to 'even the playing field between wealthy applicants and those who needed to compare financial-aid offers from different colleges.' But lack of support from other colleges meant that Harvard and Princeton were actually losing students to other schools.
