Confused about the Common App regular decision deadline

I'm trying to plan my applications, and I've noticed that the Common App regular decision deadlines vary between schools. Can someone provide some general guidelines or explain how to find the regular decision deadline for each school in the Common App?

Of course! While it's true that regular decision deadlines can vary between schools, they generally fall between January 1st and January 15th. To find the specific deadlines for each college you're applying to, follow these steps within the Common App:

1. Log in to your account on the Common App website.

2. Navigate to the "My Colleges" tab, where you'll see a list of colleges you've added to your account.

3. For each college, click on the college's name to view details about their application requirements.

4. Look for a section labeled "Deadlines," where you'll find the exact dates for the regular decision deadline.

Additionally, you could visit college-specific websites and search for admissions deadline information within their admissions sections. Keep in mind that deadlines may differ for scholarships or specific programs within a college as well.

As you continue planning your applications, make sure to keep a calendar or tracker to help you stay organized and ensure you meet all deadlines. And if you're confused about anything, reach out to the admissions office at that school directly - these deadlines are hard, so you want to be sure you know exactly when everything is due!

Best of luck with your college applications!
