Wondering when you’ll be receiving word from the school to which you applied in the Early Action / Early Decision round this year? Wonder no more! We’ve got the dates for you. From earlier notifiers like Boston College to late notifiers like Cornell University, you don’t have to stress anymore about when you’ll be hearing from these institutions. Unless of course — like many highly selective universities — they just tell you they’ll be notifying students in mid-December. We know, we know. What does mid-December mean? Does that mean December 10th? December 16th? In our experience, most highly selective schools tend to notify earlier rather than later when all they indicate in advance is mid-December. In any case, the Early Action / Early Decision notification dates for the Class of 2025 are listed below. Stay tuned for updates because, remember, these dates change frequently. In the end, colleges release when they wish to release — irrespective of what they may have declared previously. So think of these dates as, well, estimates.

And if you’re curious how these dates compare to last year, allow us to satiate your curiosity by providing you the Early Decision / Early Action notification dates for the Class of 2024. As but one example, look when our students learned of their acceptances at Stanford last year. This year, students will just have to wait a little bit longer.
