    Apparently, rolling admissions only applies to in-state applicants. Out of state were told they would not hear a decision until March.

    My Blue Hen data says the same. When I visited UD last Summer, I had a great tour with an excellent "Blue Hen Ambassador" who was really down to earth and approachable; she told me that in-state applicants are processed first, and OOS ones do indeed have to wait until March to hear.. seems like a long time from now, particularly when other schools' decisions are coming in, but if UD's high on your preference list -as it is for me- it's just a wait and see thing.. good luck!

    Yes, the only thing that applying early is consideration for is honors and scholarships. It's strange because in New York (where I am), SUNY schools like Binghamton give priority to OOS because they want the higher tuition and diversity, often discriminating against in-state applicants. UD at least understands what their original mission is, to educate in-state students

    Congrats Raiderade!! Can you please share some of your personal details? Are you in-state or out of state?

    I am instate and met all of the criteria for the Commitment to Delawareans (which isn't much of a commitment for them imo). I have a 2190 SAT, 3.95W GPA and idk what my UW GPA is. I have really good extra curriculars including an internship with the Lieutenant Governor, serving as secretary of a non-profit, and publishing two writing pieces in a political journal. My intended major is philosophy.

    Hopefully I'll qualify for merit aid but those decisions don't come out until mid march :(
