Early Decision, Early Action, and Early Decision II Deadline Organizer 2019-20

Ivy Divider

college application seasonEarly Action and Early Decision deadlines will be here before you know it. If you have one school in mind that is your ride-or-die, you should definitely consider applying Early Decision to put yourself toward the front of the pack. Many schools tend to accept a higher percentage of both Early Decision and Early Action applicants than Regular Decision applicants. If you’re not sure what the difference between those two deadlines is, read our article!

Unfortunately, there are a lot of deadlines to keep track of! Luckily for you, we’ve put together a list of Early Decision, Early Action, and Early Decision II deadlines so you can better organize your college application calendar. In our 15 years of experience helping students meet their college application deadlines with winning admissions essays, we’ve found that these deadlines rarely change. We will be updating this Organizer in early August with all the confirmed deadlines for the Class of 2024!

Don’t see your school on the list? Check back soon! We’re constantly updating this list with more deadlines so we can help you to manage this stressful process!

If you’re not sure how you should be using your time, you might want to consider working on your Common App personal statement, writing your supplemental essays, acquiring recommendations from your favorite teachers, creating a fantastic activity resume, and crossing your fingers (and toes)!

We hope you find our Organizer to be helpful! If you need any essay help, get in touch!
