When are RD kids notified?

Last year RD decisions came out on 3/17 – so around then, I guess


Thanks, this is quite the slow thread :slight_smile:

has anyone heard any updates on when they’re releasing for rd?

Nope, not a thing… Last year was 3/17

huh weird, do they tend to email a week before release like other schools? because it’s only 4 days away from 3/17 at this point which might mean they’ll release later this year?

I don’t think they do. If I recall correctly, two years ago, when my daughter was waiting on her college decisions, only Oberlin, out of her LACs, emailed everyone a firm decision release date.

My son isn’t had any schools email a week before decisions were on portals. 24 hours max.

oh interesting- i just had swarthmore email me a few days ago about release in a week so i was thinking other lacs might do that too, so it’s good to hear that most don’t as a heads up

3/17 was a Wednesday last year. Maybe it’ll be 3/16 this year? I’ve been stalking Kenyon’s social media but haven’t found a clue!

my speculation is it will come today but I’m not sure

Have they sent out any notice in the past for when they will release decisions or do they usually do it spontaneously?

I think they usually do it spontaneously

what time have they released in the past? if it does end up being today it’d be nice to have a heads up

6 PM the past two years

the last 2 years it came out on the third wednesday…
