Types of Admissions
-Rolling: Can apply continuously, will keep accepting applications until the class is filled
-Early Decision: Almost always binding. Means if you are accepted, you withdraw all other applications from other schools and commit to that school.
-Early Action: You apply early and find out a decision earlier. Used to have smaller applicant pools to compete against at this time, however, students figured that out and at some schools it is becoming even harder to get in as early action.
Types of Decisions
-Deferred: You didn’t get accepted into the first round of accepted applications but were put into the next pool of applicants (usually this happens if a student applies Early Action and does not get admitted, they are then put into the regular applicant pool and reevaluated with those applicants)
-Wait Listed: You might be accepted if they had room, but they have already accepted their maximum allotment. You have to wait until the school gets decisions back from accepted students that plan to attend a different college/university. Then you have the potential to get off the wait list. DO NOT WAIT FOR THIS TO HAPPEN! Have a second choice school!
-Early Decision/Early Action: Usually around November
-Regular Admissions: Mid-December through March
-Rolling: Apply at anytime, however once the class size is full they will not accept more applications. You should always apply early for rolling admissions for two reasons: 1. You need to be accepted prior to the class filling up and 2. If you apply too late, you will not receive any financial aid because it has already been given out to students that applied earlier.
-Universal Deadline for Decision: School deposit due (May 1st)
Admission Requirements Can Include: (Only send what each school wants!)
