Which colleges have early decision options?

Hey everyone, I'm a junior and I've started to plan my college application strategy. I want to apply to some colleges through early decision, but I'm not sure which schools offer that option. Could anyone provide a list or website with schools that have early decision options? Thanks in advance!

Hi there! It's wonderful that you're taking the initiative to plan your college application strategy early on. The list of colleges that offer Early Decision is quite extensive, but to give you a starting point, most Ivy League schools, many private liberal arts colleges, and a growing number of research universities offer ED.

For a comprehensive list, you can check out websites like the College Board and the Common Application, which provide filters to help you discover colleges by application plan, including Early Decision. Another useful tool is the database on the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) website, which allows you to search for schools with different admission options.

Just remember that ED is a significant commitment and should be reserved for a college that is unquestionably your top choice. Wishing you the best of luck with your applications!
