2019 Early Decision and Early Action Notification Dates

ED Notification Dates, EA Notification Dates, 2020 Early Decision Dates
Every one of Ivy Coach’s Stanford Early Action applicants earned admission to the Class of 2024. And, no, we can’t just say that if it were not true. After all, our students and parents read our blog (photo credit: King of Hearts).

’Tis the season. Wondering when a given university will be releasing Early Decision or Early Action notifications? If so, wonder no more. While if you applied Early Decision or Early Action, you probably already have the notification date circled in red pen on your calendar — if indeed you still keep a paper calendar — we figured we’d share the 2020 Early Decision and Early Action notification dates in any case. So here goes!
