Class of 2021 Early Notifications

Class of 2021 Admission, Class of 2021 Early Decision Notification, Class of 2021 Early Action Notification

We’ve got the Early Decision / Early Action notification dates for selective and highly selective colleges across America.

We have so many folks writing in over the last few days asking us when just about every highly selective college will be notifying applicants to the Class of 2021 of their decisions from the Early Decision / Early Action round. It’s exhausting. While we put out information every day about highly selective college admissions, we are a business. Not an information service. So for those folks writing in demanding to know when a certain school will notify applicants, don’t be too surprised when you don’t get a reply. After all, we need to devote our time and attention to our clients. But, as the leading source of advice on highly selective college admissions, we figured we’d post one final update on when we anticipate various selective and highly selective colleges to notify Early Decision / Early Action applicants of their decisions. So here goes. And if our readers know of a more recent update (since some schools update this information), do post a Comment below and we’ll verify accordingly.

    Do you have a list of dates that these schools will relate their decisions for RD?

  • San says:

    What about Harvey Mudd? It is quite selective, especially because unlike MIT or Caltech, where students apply “just because”, the students who apply to Harvey Mudd know how good the school is. In my area, I talked to many Guidance Counselors, and they did not even know that this school existed – I was not surprised. GCs were asking the students to apply to “Known” Ivy Leagues.
