Early Decision, Early Action, Regular Decision
COLLEGE APPLICATIONS AND SUBMISSION DEADLINES
EARLY ACTION (EA) applications are not binding. Normally, you may apply to several schools EA and you will receive notification of acceptance earlier than the regular decision pool. If you are confident in your application profile/grades, etc. this may be a good option. If accepted, an EA applicant can choose to commit to the college immediately, or wait until the spring. Under these plans, a student may also apply regular decision to other colleges.
Is the ED and/or EA choice right for you? The applicant pool for early decision and early action is discriminating and self selecting. If a student’s record is not superior in every way, he/she should devote their energies to strengthening it and consider applying regular decision.
Regular Decision: This is usually a later application deadline allowing students more time to complete applications. Students are often notified in March or the beginning of April of their admission decisions.
Rolling Admissions: Some schools offer rolling admissions meaning they accept applicants as applications are received and reviewed. Typically admissions responses are received sooner at the beginning of the application cycle. If a student applies during the "crunch time" (ie late fall) turnaround time to receive an admissions decision might be a bit longer.
