Early Application DeadlinesHere’s When Students Applying Early to the Class of 2020 Need to Submit Applications

We’re closing in on the first college application deadlines for the Class of 2020. Here are some of the fall 2015 early application deadlines students need to be aware of.

Applying to a college early decision or early action isn’t something to take lightly. Only apply to a school early if you are really ready to submit the best application possible and if it’s truly your top-choice college. Since some early programs are binding, meaning you have to enroll if admitted, it’s important to make sure you’re ready to make that commitment.

It’s also important to make sure you’re using the early application strategy to your advantage. If a school is your top-choice but your application isn’t ready, applying early could lead to a swift rejection – and you can’t reapply in the regular round. Even though early application admission rates tend to be higher than regular admission rates, it’s better to submit your best application in the regular round than a lackluster one early.

If you’re finishing up your early applications this month, be sure to check out our October newsletter, which includes some last-minute tips for early applications.
