2020 Ivy League Early Decision Notification Dates

2020 Early Decision Ivies, Ivy League Early Decision, Early Decision Notification Date

We have the Class of 2020 Early Decision / Early Action notification dates for the eight Ivy League colleges for our readers.

We’ve got information on the Early Decision and Early Action notification dates for the eight Ivy League universities to share with our loyal readers. As we approach these final days before Early Decision and Early Action applicants are informed of their admissions decisions, dare we say…stop thinking about it? Think about the 22-game winning streak of the Golden State Warriors. Think about Christmas presents. Think about the moon. But there’s no sense worrying about the decision that is being rendered.

For our students who worked with us this admissions cycle, they can know in their heart of hearts that they did everything they could to earn admission to their top choice college — to optimize their chances of admission. And many of them (indeed we hope all of them like in many past admissions cycles) earn admission to the colleges of their dreams. But in these final days, distraction is key.

We know you’re still thinking about the Ivy League Early Decision notification dates for the Class of 2020. We can hear your thoughts. Seriously. Alright, alright. We’ll share with you the Early Decision and Early Action notification dates….since you’ll drive yourselves nuts otherwise:
