When are Early Decision application deadlines?

I'm currently working on my college list and trying to map out my application timeline. When are Early Decision deadlines for most colleges? Are they typically in November or earlier? I want to make sure I have enough time to prepare a strong application if I decide to go the ED route. Thanks for any guidance!

Hey there! It's great that you're planning out your application timeline. Early Decision deadlines for most colleges are typically in November, with some falling on November 1st and others on November 15th. However, it's always best to double-check the deadlines for the specific colleges you're interested in since they may vary slightly.

To prepare a strong application, it's a good idea to give yourself plenty of time to work on your essays, gather necessary documents, and request recommendation letters from teachers or counselors. My own child had applied Early Decision, and we aimed to have everything completed by the end of October to avoid any last-minute panic.

Remember, applying ED means committing to attend that school if accepted, so make sure it's your top choice before submitting. Good luck with your application process, and I hope you get into your dream school!
