Harvard and Yale also dropped their binding early decision options, but the anticipated landslide of other colleges moving away from early admissions never happened.

"We hope that more schools make the same decision about early admissions," Moeser says. "It's our responsibility to lead the way in reform and avoid the federal government stepping in."
