What time do early decision results typically come out?

Hi everyone! So I'm planning on applying early decision to my top-choice college, and I've been wondering about when early decision results are usually released. Is there a standard time of day when colleges typically release ED results, or does it vary for each school? Just trying to plan ahead, so any information you have would be super helpful!

Hi! It's great that you're applying early decision to your top-choice college! As for the timeline, early decision results are typically released in mid-December, but the exact date and time can vary depending on the institution. Some colleges may have a set date for the release of early decision results, while others might have a more flexible timeline. To get more specific information about your chosen college's release schedule, I recommend checking their admissions website or contacting their admissions office directly. They should be able to provide the most accurate information.

In terms of the time of day when results are released, this can also vary. Some colleges prefer to release results in the late afternoon or evening, while others may release them during regular business hours. It's difficult to predict an exact time for when the results will be announced.

My best advice is to stay updated with the college's admissions website and any email communications they send out, as they will most likely provide you with the necessary updates about your early decision results. Best of luck!
