Washington and Lee Early Decision for Fall 2022 Admission

The ED deadline is Nov 1 (not Nov 31… what calendar did that come from?) ED2 receives decisions by end of January. I corrected both of those errors.

For anyone applying, I suggest checking the college websites for the most accurate information.

Anyone know when the decision will be released? It only says late December. I noticed that financial aid decision seems to be released on the 16th, so I think it should be on or before 16th, but I didn’t get any emails.

Where do you get the financial aid decision release date?
