Hi, when do you guys think decisions are coming out?

Anyone want to participate in an ED2 thread? Decisions are scheduled to be out two weeks from today.


Yes! They said that decisions will be released by Feb 15th. I couldn’t find out when ED2 applicants were notified last year. Does anyone know?

Haven’t heard a thing. UVa was to release decisions by February 15, and they are releasing tomorrow (February 4).

Yep, Northeastern, Emory, and Tufts have alll released ED2.

Prior to last year, Pomona tended to release decisions on the Friday or two before the “by” date, but went out of that pattern last year and this (they released this year’s ED1 on the “by” date).


Our high school guidance counselor sent out a note yesterday saying Pomona Admissions told her they expect to release their ED2 decisions this Friday, 2/11.


Great! Good luck to everyone!
