Harvard decisions release time?

Hello fellow students! I'm curious, what time does Harvard typically release their admissions decisions? I want to be prepared for when the moment comes, and I'm trying to figure out if it's going to be during school hours or in the evening. Any insight is appreciated!

Hello! Typically, Harvard releases their Regular Decision admissions decisions in late March, while their Early Action decisions are released in mid-December. The exact date varies from year to year, but they usually announce the date a few weeks in advance.

As for the time of day, decisions are commonly released in the late afternoon or early evening (around 4-7pm) Eastern Time. They do this to accommodate various time zones across the country, but depending on where you are in the country or the world, that may mean you're not yet home from school, or you could even be asleep.

Of course, it's essential to keep an eye on any updates or official communications from Harvard as the decision release date approaches. I know the process can be quite nerve-wracking, but it's important to stay patient and calm during the wait - ultimately, when the decision is released has no bearing on whether it's a yes or a no. Best of luck!
