When Are College Admissions Decisions Released?

April 1st is the last day for colleges to release their admissions decisions for the Class of 2021.

Many top colleges release their admissions decisions earlier, however. For example, MIT, UChicago, CalTech, and Georgia Tech are among the top colleges with earlier release dates for their freshman college admissions decisions. The Ivy League will be releasing decisions closer to the April 1st date, along with many other top colleges, such as Stanford, Duke, Vanderbilt, Georgetown, New York University (NYU), and Northwestern.

If you are like other college-bound high school seniors, you are likely repeatedly clicking refresh waiting for your college admissions decisions. Fortunately, there is only a week left!

During this time, it is important to be patient and respectful to the colleges. You are welcome to check their admissions sites for updated information, but you should avoid calling or emailing the admissions offices to learn of your admissions decision earlier. Previously, I posted an article regarding the importance of patience during this time, along with a few tips to help you through the final days.

On paper, I am by no means a perfect student. However, thanks to my Application Positioning, I was able to maximize the strengths that I bring to a college to compensate for other factors. Thanks to The Ivy Dean Team, I will be attending Princeton University, my dream school, in the fall.

Dee provided excellent advice and guidance throughout the application process. Her overall expertise in admissions, professionalism and warmth made the experience a great one. I was thrilled that I was accepted to several of the most selective colleges in the country and will be attending Stanford in the fall.”

It's my pleasure to inform you that I've been admitted to my first choice college: the University of Southern California. My dream is becoming reality! I am thrilled to get the chance to belong to the USC and to start a new adventure there. It is also thanks to your great help that I've been accepted, I'm very grateful! Thank you so much for everything.

Our son and daughter wanted to go to colleges in the same city but they had different interests and different strengths. She matched them each with their ideal college, one Columbia University and the other NYU, and worked to get them admitted. We couldn't have been more pleased.

I was a serious student but also wanted a university where I could continue competitive cycling. There weren't many schools that met my needs and fit my personality. From her experience, she was able to hone right in on what became my first choice school. I graduated last year and the entire college experience was awesome.

My parents and I didn't know how helpful it could be to have someone who understood things from the inside working with us. Ms. Blackman was able to identify just what would make me the most attractive candidate to colleges.
