What Goes Around Comes Around

In the fall of 2007, the University of Virginia and Princeton University dropped their binding Early Decision plans and Harvard University eliminated Early Action. Now three years later, the University of Virginia will be implementing an Early Action plan for its applicants next fall and hopes to receive between 12,000 and 15,000 Early applications. Early Action admissions at UVA would follow the same policy as at other Early Action colleges. Applications would be due by November 1st, and while applicants will be notified by the middle of December, they wouldn’t have to commit to attend until May 1st. Only time will tell if this move will bring Early Action back to Harvard University and if Princeton will follow their lead.

While you’re here, check out our earlier post on whether or not colleges will be dropping Early policies.
