Creating this b/c I don't see a thread yet.
A bit about me: I'm a First-Year at Brown (Class of 2024) who applied ED, was deferred, and accepted RD. Feel free to ask any questions you might have, and I'll do my best to answer them! Good luck to everyone who applied ED this year!
Decisions typically release on the 2nd Thursday in December, last-year at 6 pm Eastern. You'll receive an email the week before decisions are slated to release and 2 days before decisions release, Slate (application portal management system that's used by many colleges) will likely auto-generate an email after decisions release if you haven't checked yours yet.
