We're getting closer to the last batch of admissions decisions for regular decision applicants, so we thought we'd start a crowdsourced list. If you have a firm date for decision notification, please add it to the list. Here's a start:

Rutgers - Feb 28
Princeton - Mar 31
Stanford - Apr 1
Vanderbilt - Apr 1
Virginia Tech - Apr 1

    btw, can anyone provide a link for the Rice and Stanford dates? Rice usually releases results earlier than April 1st

    many of these dates are updated in February and March as we get closer to the stated release dates. However, March 31st for Ivies and April 1st for Stanford might not since they typically release on Thursday and Friday respectively.

    Virginia Tech notified RD last year on February 20, even though they said April 1.
  • Wje9164beWje9164be Registered User Posts: 1,192 Senior Member
    When you check the dates release admissions decisions from one year to the next you will find that many times a college will release decisions on say the 2nd Tuesday in March. They might communicate a later date to provide themselves some leeway. This is the point OspreyCV22 makes above with regards to Virginia Tech. There is actually a finally calibrated sequence with of release dates with most state flagships in early March, U.Chicago and MIT in mid March, the very top LAC's several days before the Ivy League schools and all the Ivy League schools on the same day at very near the same time. The net effect unfortunately is that students are feeling great with a string of unbroken favorable admissions decisions followed by some crushing rejections at the very end of March

    Are those schools^ all CONFIRMED, or just according to the school's website? Some schools say that their notification date is April 1 and they end up releasing decisions earlier.
