When is the early decision deadline typically?

I'm a high school junior trying to get a head start on my college applications. I was wondering when the early decision deadline generally is for most schools. I know it might be different for each school, but is there a general timeframe I need to be aware of? Thank you!

Hello! It's great that you're thinking ahead and preparing for your college applications. You're right that the early decision deadlines can vary slightly from school to school, but most of them tend to have similar timeframes.

In general, early decision deadlines are usually around November 1st or November 15th, though some may be earlier or later. It's important to check the specific deadline for each school you're interested in, as even a couple of days can make a difference. To help stay organized, you could create a chart or spreadsheet with the schools you're applying to and their deadlines.

Keep in mind that you'll also want to give yourself plenty of time to work on your essays, gather letters of recommendation, and make sure all other materials are ready to submit before the deadline.

Best of luck with your early decision applications!
