When do ED decisions come out?

Hi everyone! I'm thinking about applying Early Decision to one of my top-choice schools next fall. Can you guys share your experiences with when the ED decisions usually come out? Is there a general timeframe I should expect, or does it vary by college? Any help would be appreciated!

Hello! Early Decision (ED) decisions typically come out in mid-December, but the exact date can vary depending on the college. Most schools will provide an approximate release date once you've submitted your application, and you can usually find information on their admissions website as well. It's also a good idea to follow the college's social media accounts and check your email for updates and announcements about decision release dates.

Keep in mind that the timeline might change slightly from year to year, but decision releases are generally clustered around the second or third week of December. Best of luck with your application, and hopefully it'll be good news coming your way!
