Emory gets record number of applicants

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Emory's main undergraduate division says it's received a record number of applications for fall 2013 admittance.

The Emory College of Arts and Sciences says it received 17,652, up from the previous high last year of 17,493. The target enrollment for the class is 1,350.

The application pool included a record number of early decision applicants. Applications for the first early decision deadline were up 10% over last year, and applications for the second early decision deadline were up 16%. Nearly half the class is expected to enroll via early decision.

Emory dean of admission John Latting says the prospective students ACT and SAT scores suggests the applicant pool is also stronger than last year's.

Students will be notified of their acceptance status by April 1.
