2016 Early Decision Notification Dates
For those students waiting to hear from their Early Decision / Early Action schools, we figured we’d update you with anticipated notification dates. After all, there’s no sense checking your phone every day, every hour on the hour if you know the decision isn’t coming for another several days, right? Seriously. Stop checking your phones so much. And we know you’re doing it more than every hour on the hour. You’re checking every five minutes. Enough. Go for a walk. A swim. Go fly a kite.
Brown will be notifying applicants on December 14th. Cornell will have them beat. They’re notifying applicants on December 8th, Columbia on December 12th. Dartmouth will notify applicants on December 14th, Harvard on December 13th. Princeton still hasn’t released word on the precise date they’ll be informing Early Action applicants, though UPenn has and it’ll be on December 9th. Yale will release word on December 15th. So that covers the Ivy League colleges. Glad we got that taken care of. Phew.
Outside the Ivies, Duke will release decisions on December 15th, Stanford on the 9th. Northwestern will release on the 15th, Johns Hopkins on the 16th. Williams and Amherst will both release on the 15th. Oh and Carnegie Mellon and Emory will send out word on the 15th too. But this is dreadfully boring to check the notification dates on each university’s admissions page so if you’re curious to know one, just ask away. Or just look it up yourselves. On the school’s admissions homepage. So there’s that. We know you can do it, Class of 2021!

I believe Stanford releases decisions BY the 15th, not on the 15th. (Unless you have more information than I do.) Historically Stanford has released decisions on the Friday before the final date, which would make it the 9th this year.
As it states on Stanford’s admissions site, decisions will be released on the 15th.
They just tweeted that decisions will be released Friday, December 9 at 3:00 p.m. PST. https://twitter.com/EngageStanford/status/806637650270527488
do you know the early decision notification date for Smith College? Thanks!
It’s December 15th for Smith College.
UChicago seems mums-the-word. You have an ear for their date?
Washington University in St. Louis?
They came out yesterday December 10 at Wash U STL.
Do you have a reference for the Yale date of 12/15? All I see on their site is “mid-December”. Thank you.
Will Yale notify acceptance prior to December 15th? On December 15th, you will only receive deferred Or denied notification?
Decisions go out the same day — acceptance, deferral, or denial.
