When to know if you’re accepted: season 2007

It’s almost March, which means that results from regular admissions will start trickling in soon enough.

Since there seems to be no comprehensive list anywhere on the Internet that compiles the dates when each of the top schools report their decisions for regular admissions, we at AdmitSpit created one. The name of each school, along with the date you should expect a response and any special notes are provided. This data was taken from each college’s admissions Web site. This post will likely be updated with more detailed dates and times as deadlines approach and colleges release more precise information about when notifications will be sent out.

Brown: Decisions will be mailed “end of March” 2007, and definitely they will be mailed no later than in the first week of April.

CIT: Decisions mailed “late March/early April.”

Columbia University: Regular Decision application decisions are mailed out in the first week of April, along with invitations for on-campus and regional programs for accepted students.

Cornell: Regular Decision application decisions for Agriculture and Life Sciences, Hotel Administration, and Industrial and Labor Relations are rolling starting in the beginning of February. For the other four schools, decisions are sent out in “early April.”

Dartmouth: Admission decisions and Financial Aid Awards are mailed in “early April” to Regular Decision applicants and deferred Early Decision applicants.

Duke: Regular Decision application decisions are sent out “early April.”

Georgetown: Announcement of Regular Decision results is on April 1.

Harvard: Letters for Regular Decision applicants mailed in “early April.”

Johns Hopkins University: Decisions for Regular Decision applicants are released on April 1.

MIT: Regular Decision applicants are notified of results “mid to late-March,” and all applicants are notified of financial aid packages on April 1. 

Northwestern: Regular Decision application decisions are sent out in early April.

NYU: Regular Decision result notification is April 1.

Princeton: Regular Decision application notification is in “early April,” and financial aid offers are made to admitted students at that time as well.

Rice University: Interim Decision applicants were notified of their admissions decision on February 10, 2007, and Regular Decision applicants are notified on April 1.

Stanford: For Regular Decision applicants, notification of missing documents is made in mid-February, and decision notifications are made in early April.

University of California: Each UC campus will send admission notification between March 1 and March 31. All offers of admission are provisional until the accepted student’s official final transcript and verification of successful completion of all coursework required for UC eligibility is received.

University of Chicago: Regular Notification admission decisions are made by early April.

University of Michigan: Final admissions decisions are sent to all applicants, including those postponed for April Review, in mid-April.

University of Pennsylvania: Notification for Regular Decision applicants to the School of Nursing is made between February 1 and March 31, and notification for all other Regular Decision applicants is mailed April 4.

University of Southern California: Admission decisions are mailed April 1.

Yale: Regular Decision applicants are notified of admission results in “early April.”

What’s lost when Stanford uses the Common App Soon to be AP registration: season 2007

    Do you know which of these are mail only, or which have online notifications in some form at the same or different time? Good list!

  • 2. Andrew  |  February 28, 2007 at 2:15 am

    thanks, this is really helpful!

    you might want to include that some of them allow you to check decisions online such as MIT and UCBerkeley

    Hi. I just want to say that I find this website to be really helpful and I thought I’d let you know—Dartmouth is posting their decisions online on March 29th.

  • 4. Susan  |  March 14, 2007 at 2:36 pm

    Great list – just some additional info: Yale and Brown release decisions online on 3/29 (and apparently Dartmouth according to the post above). MIT releases online on 3/17; and Davidson releases online on 3/24…

  • 5. Reggie  |  March 15, 2007 at 2:20 am

    Thanks, this is pretty helpful. Also, I just want to say that Penn’s Regular Decisions go up on March 29th too.

  • 6. Jen  |  March 16, 2007 at 12:02 am

    If you haven’t noticed the trend from past comments on here, all the Ivies are collectively posting decisions online on March 29th–at 5 pm, to be exact.

  • 7. Susan  |  March 16, 2007 at 3:12 pm

    Jen & Wendy – just curious about where you got your info…we applied at Harvard, Yale, Brown, Princeton and Dartmouth and the only definate online release info has come from Yale & Brown. It would be great to have answers from all on the 29…

  • 8. Wendy  |  March 18, 2007 at 9:35 pm

    I applied to Dartmouth and if you check your status online, it tells you in the “letter” that they are planning on posting their decisions on March 29th.

  • 9. Naik  |  March 21, 2007 at 1:36 am

    Harvard, Princeton and Yale are posting decisions online at 5.00 pm ET on Mar 29th

    Hi, I just discovered this site and wish that I had known about it when I was applying to colleges last year. The responses from the blog writers is extremely professional and knowledgeable; if I hadn’t looked at the ”about AdmitSpit writers” section, I would’ve been convinced that admissions staffers were in charge.

    Just a quick correction – the University of Southern California has been sending out admittance letters since February, with the first round going out to the full and half tuition scholarship candidates. Non-scholarship admits have been hearing back since March, and the tail end of applicant pool have their letters sent out on April 1. The last letters sent out on April 1 have more rejection letters than acceptance. In other words, admit letters for USC have been sent out since February, and basically those with the best qualifications hear back as early as February, but the non-major scholarship candidates started hearing back in March.

    Does anyone know whether Hamilton, Bowdoin, Connecticut and Bates post regular decisions online and when? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

  • 12. Pouya  |  March 27, 2007 at 4:54 am

    All the ivy league schools release their decisions on the same day and time on 3/29 at 5 pm

  • 13. Blarney McSmitherspants  |  March 27, 2007 at 8:20 pm

    Does anyone know when Cornell will release decisions? I know the common ivy notification date is 3/29 but I cannot find any such confirmation anywhere on Cornell’s site. Penn and Columbia sent either mail or email to confirm the 3/29 date.

  • 14. Wendy  |  March 27, 2007 at 11:03 pm

    Gabriel – Bowdoin doesn’t post their decisions online, and I would guess that the others don’t either. I’ve found that most of the small private colleges I applied to only send out letters. However, and I know this probably won’t help you much, I do know that the latest Bowdoin will mail theirs is the first week of April. They don’t currently know when they will send them.

  • 15. Quynh  |  March 28, 2007 at 4:47 am

    By online decisions you all mean by email? Or must we log into the school’s admission status page?

  • 16. eyoon  |  June 12, 2007 at 2:54 pm

    I’m a junior and I was interested in applying to USC. Does USC accept early decision/actions too??

    PLEASE reply!

  • 17. EM  |  December 8, 2007 at 5:23 pm

    When does Bowdoin send out their ED and RD notices, and how? Online?

  • 18. nnadi charles tochukwu  |  December 10, 2007 at 4:50 pm
