Greetings from Boston and Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and that you are back feeling excited and rejuvenated for a great year ahead.

Now that we have passed the January 1 deadline for Regular Decision (RD), I wanted to provide you with a brief update. We have received a record number of applications, totaling more than 54,000 overall (a 6% increase), and over 28,000 RD applications, for our largest and most competitive class yet. We are working tirelessly to complete files and evaluate applications, and will release all admission decisions electronically before April 1. In addition, I’d like to share two other updates:

  • We would like your help encouraging your ED and EA admitted students to attend their Welcome Day event this springstudents can choose from dates in March or April. For a comprehensive list of admitted student events, please click here.
  • New this year, we are hosting a special Honors Welcome Day for all students admitted into the Northeastern University Honors Program. This event will take place on Sunday, March 19 and will touch upon the distinctive opportunities that make the University Honors Program so unique. Please encourage your honors students to attend!

My team is eager to assist you and your students throughout this process. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 617.373.2200, touch base with your Admissions officer, or tweet your question to @NUAdmissions with the hashtag #askNUAdmissions.

Warm regards,

Elizabeth Cheron
