When do Early Decision decisions typically come out?

Hello! I'm considering applying Early Decision to a few schools and I'm curious about when I should expect decisions to be released. Is there a typical time when Early Decision decisions come out? Thanks for your help!

Hey there! It's great that you're considering applying Early Decision. The exact dates for when Early Decision decisions are released might vary between colleges, but they generally follow a similar timeline.

Most colleges release their Early Decision results in mid-December. There are some exceptions – a few schools may release decisions earlier in December or even late November, while others might release them closer to the end of December.

To be more specific, I recommend checking the websites of the colleges you're applying to, as they'll typically have exact dates listed for when you can expect a decision. If you can't find the information online, you can also try reaching out to the admissions office directly, and they should be able to provide you with a more accurate timeline.

I remember when my child applied Early Decision, they received their decision around December 15th. It can be an exciting and nerve-wracking time. Try to be patient and stay busy with other activities while you wait for the results. Good luck - I hope you get the decision you're hoping for!
