Hello! Rolling admissions can indeed be a great option to consider when applying to colleges. One key benefit is that you can receive your admission decision much quicker than with regular or early decision processes. This can give you peace of mind and potentially reduce the stress of waiting for a decision. Additionally, if you're accepted, you can start planning your college journey earlier, which may include securing housing, registering for classes, and applying for scholarships. Also, because there isn't a fixed deadline, you can apply when you feel your application is at its strongest. However, it's still a good idea to apply early in the rolling admissions window, as spots can fill up and become more competitive over time. Including a few colleges with rolling admissions in your list can be a smart strategy, but it's important to research each school and ensure they are a good fit for your academic, social, and financial needs. Ultimately, the decision should be based on what's best for you and your goals. Best of luck with your college search!
