Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

By Chuck Hughes

Former Senior Harvard Admissions Officer


Schools are beginning to release regular admissions decisions. Boston College, Northeastern, Washington University, some of the UC schools and other colleges have sent their regular admissions responses, and another wave of schools will release results today. We have compiled a list of schools that we have contacted with their release dates and another group that lists when they released decisions last year. Hopefully this will help you keep track of the next two weeks of decisions that will be coming to your students.
