    Many dates in the list reflect a later, "by" date rather than a definitive date. Applicants looking for more precision may be able to get a closer estimate by looking at last year's decision dates in the 2024 thread in the college's forum.

    E.g., apparently BC has already emailed that decisions will be available during the week of Nov 30. Typically, they send an email that week with the exact decision release date. Last year, ED1 was released Dec 5, if I recall.

    I would be cautious in using the last year's, pre-COVID release date as a benchmark.
    On top of obvious logistical challenges this year, some colleges moved the ED application deadline, typically from Nov 1 to Nov 15.
    One example - Pomona: just like last year, it is officially Dec 15; but while they emailed their decisions on Dec 6, 2019, I don't think it is realistic to expect them to wrap it up in 3 weeks this year.
