what are the candidates like who get into HYP early? and how many are accepted early into HYP?
Last year there were 2 Stanford early (1 athlete), 2 Harvard early, 3 Yale early (2 athletes) and 2 Princeton early (1 athlete). The candidates who get accepted early are the very top students. If you can get in early you can definitely get in regular but not the other way around. The kids who got in early got into many other schools in the regular round. (Early action is a lot harder than regular decision).
