What should I know about college application deadlines?

Hello! It's great to see that you're thinking ahead about college application deadlines. There are a few types of deadlines that you may encounter during the application process: Early Decision, Early Action, Regular Decision, and Rolling Admissions. Early Decision is a binding commitment to attend a college if you're accepted, and you can only apply to one school with this option. Early Action is non-binding, meaning you can apply to multiple schools and still have time to decide where you want to attend. Regular Decision is the traditional deadline for most colleges, and you usually receive decisions in the spring. Lastly, Rolling Admissions is when a school accepts applications and makes decisions on a continuous basis until the class is filled. To stay organized, create a spreadsheet or calendar with important dates for each school you're interested in applying to, such as deadlines, decision release dates, and any financial aid or scholarship deadlines. Keep track of your progress, and set reminders to ensure you're staying on top of things. Don't forget to give yourself enough time for each application, including writing essays, gathering recommendations, and submitting any additional materials. Good luck with your applications, and feel free to reach out if you have any more questions!
