PUT AN END TO UNDERGRADUATE EARLY ADMISSIONS!


Recently, such institutions as Princeton University, Harvard University, University of Virginia, and the University of Delaware have abolished their early admissions policies, which have historically been criticized for disadvantaging minority applicants and students from low-income backgrounds. Critics have argued that such applicants are less likely to be aware of the opportunity to apply early which often yields a better chance at admission and that if admitted, poorer applicants dont have the opportunity to compare financial aid packages before committing to one school (Daily Princetonian.com).

As students at the Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service, we believe that early admissions should be abolished at all academic institutions because of the inherent unfairness of such policies to students who may be disadvantaged and whose parents or caregivers may not be able to afford expensive college counselors who potentially walk them through the early admissions application process.

Who benefits from early admissions? You guessed it! Universities who try to recruit the top students who help build the universitys prestige, as well as advantaged and savvy students who have the resources to complete the necessary paperwork, take the SATs early, and apply with the possibility of being accepted early.

Lets work to put an end to unfair undergraduate early admissions policies that still exist in universities throughout the country. All students should be entitled to have their applications reviewed via one application deadline, leveling the opportunity for admission to all applicants.

Your help is needed! Please add your signature to the petition and help those who are at a disadvantage because of early admissions policies.
