Any colleges with an October 15th application deadline?

Hey guys, I'm trying to plan my application submissions and I’ve heard that some schools have early deadlines. Does anyone know which colleges typically have an October 15th application deadline? I want to make sure I don't miss any early opportunities. Thanks for the help!

Hello! It's not very common for colleges to have an October 15th deadline, but there are a few that do, particularly for early action or early decision applications, which are non-binding and binding respectively.

One school that traditionally has this deadline is the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for their Early Action applicants. It’s always a good idea to check each college's admissions website directly for the most current information, as deadlines can sometimes change from year to year.

Don't forget to account for all the components of your application, such as essays, recommendation letters, and test scores. These elements can take considerable time to prepare, so it's best to start well before the deadline. Also, if you're considering applying by an early deadline, this may increase your chances of admission, as mentioned earlier about Early Decision giving a potential admissions boost. However, this means that you should be absolutely sure the school is one of your top choices.

Lastly, keep an eye out for other early deadlines like November 1st or November 15th, which are more common for early application rounds. Wishing you the best of luck with your applications!
