Class of 2022 Early Application Notification Dates

We have been swamped with email recently from seniors around the world asking if we have information on early application notification dates. This is no surprise given the big jump in early applications at most top schools in the past few years. As always, we’ve got your backs, seniors.

These early results start showing up in mid December, so for those of you who have taken advantage of an Early Decision or Early Action opportunity, mark your calendars.

We’ve compiled a list of early notification release dates below. These change each year, but here’s what we know so far AND if you have info on other schools (OR we’re missing one) please post a comment:

    Anyone know when Columbia’s comes out? I heard that some kids already received their rejections letters last Saturday. Do decisions come out on different dates?

    • Deanna

      Posted on December 7, 2017 at 1:52 pm

      Per Columbia’s site, they’ll release decisions mid-December. Decisions typically come out on the same day. Thanks!
