Notification for Early Applicants Coming Soon

Thousands of early applicants are still waiting to hear back from schools as to whether they've been accepted, rejected, or deferred, and many are wondering whether decisions will be later this year due to dozens of colleges postponing their early decision and early action deadlines as a result of widespread Common App glitches. William & Mary is one such school that delayed its early deadline till November 8th. According to its admissions department, "We always say early December as a notification, not December 1 because there are so many moving parts to completing a review process and we never know that we're ready to release decisions until the moment we do (last year for example a snow day and internet outage delayed our timeline). We do not yet know if the delayed application deadline will push back our release timeline. We just ask students to be patient. As soon as decisions are released we will let students know in all social media channels."

December is commonly stated as the month when early applicants are notified. Here's what some top colleges are projecting:

  • Amherst College: December 15
  • Boston University: December 15
  • Columbia University: December 12
  • Harvard University: Mid-December
  • New York University: December 15
  • Tufts University: December 18
  • University of Michigan: December 24
  • University of Virginia: January 31
  • Vassar College: Mid-December
  • William & Mary: Mid-December
  • Yale University: Mid-December
