Early admission notification dates are just around the corner! If you applied through an Early Action or Early Decision program, you’ll soon be learning whether you’ve been admitted, deferred, or denied admission. We sure hope you haven’t procrastinated completing your Regular Decision applications because if you get deferred or denied admission at your Early school, you will find yourself in quite the pickle in terms of the amount of time you have to get these applications into tip top shape. And just when will you be learning of your Early Decision or Early Action decision? We’ve got those dates for our loyal readers.
On December 11th at 5 PM EST, Harvard will notify its Early Action applicants of their admissions decisions. Yale will notify applicants on December 16th. Penn will let its Early Decision applicants — which the school loves so much — know on December 15th at 5 PM EST. Princeton will just beat Penn to the punch, informing applicants at 3 PM EST that same day (December 15th). Dartmouth will be contacting students around then too as will Cornell. Columbia and Brown will inform its applicants at 5 PM EST on December 11th…just like Harvard.
