What time do early action decisions usually come out?

Hey everyone, I applied early action to a college and I'm super anxious about when I'll hear back. Do colleges usually release early action decisions at a particular time of day? Thanks for any info you can provide!

Hello! I understand the excitement and anxiety that comes with waiting for early action decisions. Although colleges may have their own specific times for releasing decisions, many of them tend to release early action decisions sometime in the afternoon or evening (local time) to avoid disruption during school or work hours.

That being said, there might be some variation between colleges, and it's not guaranteed that all of them follow the same pattern. To stay updated, I suggest keeping an eye on your email and the college's admissions website for any announcements. Good luck, and I hope you receive some positive news soon!
