Early Application Decision Notification Dates

This is a big week for the thousands of students who applied early to schools this season as the majority of colleges release their admissions decisions this week. As the results trickle in, keep in mind that even if things don't work out with your dream school, you will end up at the right college for you. And ultimately, it's not the college that makes you, it's what you make of the college experience.

Here's a list of popular schools and their notification dates (subject to change).
