When are the Early Action decision results typically released?

Hello, I'm planning to apply Early Action to a few colleges. Does anyone have an idea of when the Early Action decisions are generally released? Just trying to prepare myself ahead of time. Thank you!

Hello! It's great that you're considering applying Early Action to some colleges. To answer your question, the release of Early Action decisions can vary depending on the specific college, but generally, you can expect them to be released around mid-December to early January. Keep in mind that each school may have its own timeline.

For example, when my child applied Early Action, they received their decision from one college around December 15th and another college by January 1st. Be sure to check the websites of the colleges you're applying to for any specific dates or updates related to decision releases.

It's essential to be prepared, so make sure to have a plan in place for whichever outcome, such as having your Regular Decision applications ready to submit if necessary. Wishing you the best of luck with your college applications, and don't forget to enjoy the process and celebrate your accomplishments along the way! Feel free to ask any more questions if you have them.
