Does anyone know if NC State releases all early action decisions on January 30th or do they roll out decisions anytime prior to January 30th?


This thread is quiet. I would like to know also about NC State.

I actually ended up emailing. They told me all EA decisions are released on the same day. January 30th at the latest.

Anyone hear about Park semi-finalist? Seems in years past it was released a few days early on a Friday.

Dang I really hope they release EA decisions soon. Really want to go to the engineering school for Comp Sci.

Park Scholars semifinalists usually receive admission notification in December. Otherwise, they only release in January.

Yes I called too. Thanks!

Did we have to apply for that or is it automatic consideration?

Wow congrats! Do you mind sharing his stats as well as residency?

Awesome, those are amazing stats! Did he apply engineering by chance?

I’m in the same boat, 3.97 UW, 4.54 W, 1470 SAT, 11 APs and 4 DE! I applied CS in EA.

My daughter admitted and is a semifinalist also! OOS.
Glad to make the first cut - and possibly affordable with OOS tuition!
