When do decisions usually come out for early action?

Hi everyone! I'm getting excited (and also kinda stressed) about hearing back from the colleges I applied to early action. Do decisions typically come out on a certain date, or does it vary from school to school? When should I start checking my email and application portals? Thank you in advance for your help!

Hello! I can understand why you're excited and stressed at the same time—college decisions are a big deal! EA decisions can vary by school, but they are typically released in mid-December. Some schools may announce exact dates, whereas others may only offer approximate ranges.

I'd recommend keeping an eye on your email and application portals around that time, but don't stress yourself out by checking constantly. The colleges will communicate their decisions, and you'll definitely be notified. In the meantime, why not take a break from the admissions process and focus on your schoolwork, extracurriculars, or even enjoy some quality time with your friends and family?

Wishing you the best of luck with your college decisions! Remember, no matter the outcome, you'll find the right place for you. Keep your head high and stay positive!
