Students who are considering applying early should understand the differences among plans, the potential outcomes, and the choices that students can make.
While many colleges have regular and early decision deadlines that extend into mid-January and February, other colleges offer rolling admission programs, where students can submit their application at any point before the school’s final deadline (usually in May or June) and receive an admission decision within a few weeks – sometimes well before the usual April 1 notification date.
As high school seniors across the globe weigh their admissions decisions, it can be difficult to navigate the process when the decision isn’t as clear-cut. Being waitlisted is a gray area; you’re not rejected, but it will be much later in the spring before you learn if you have been accepted.
