Early Applications Decision Dates

Many of our students have applied ED or EA (including SCEA and REA) to universities.

While competition is fierce this application season, our students are confident that with our guidance they have definitely put their best foot forward.

This cohort was an ambitious one - most students applied to 12 universities and all applied to Top 100 US universities, as well as Top 100 World Universities.

Still, the Common App preliminary findings for Nov.1 deadlines is that growth in the number of international applicants (applicants who report citizenship for a country outside the U.S.) continues to far outpace growth in domestic applicants at 87% since 2019–20 (versus 38%).

In total, through Nov. 1, 836,679 distinct first-year applicants planning to enroll in the 2024–25 academic year had applied to 834 returning members (an increase of 41% from 592,390 in 2019–20, pre-pandemic).


Below you will find release dates for decisions on early applications.


What can you do while you wait?

1- continue doing well in school;

2- continue demonstrating interest to the colleges and universities that track demonstrated interest;

3- check your university portals frequently;

4- continue writing your supplemental essays and preparing additional applications to schools that were in your college list, in case you still have work to do;

4- breathe! You have done your part, and all of the universities on your college list are institutions where you will thrive.

Again, congratulations on your hard work!
