    ^ Only if they say "by ______".

    Do you remember Georgia Tech's decision? They had this annoying pop-up that prevented applicants from checking before the designated time :p

    Sometimes they release early on the same date as well. Though if universities don't release decisions on the time they said they would, it tells me a lot about their punctuality and commitment.
