Curious when each highly selective university will be releasing its 2018 Regular Decision notifications? We figured you might be. It’s why we’ve aggregated the admission notification dates for many of America’s most highly selective schools. This way, you won’t have to stay awake at night wondering if it’ll be late March or early April. Some schools are super specific when it comes to when they’ll be notifying students of their decisions. As an example, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology — ever the school for jocks rather than math geeks — will release its Regular Decision notifications on March 14th at 6:28 PM EST in honor of Pi Day. Hey, MIT owns who it is — kudos to them! Other schools are a bit more vague. Many schools just release that they’ll notify applicants in late March or early April.
