Last September, I posted a blog that answered some of your most frequently asked questions about early decision. Well, 146 comments later, it is one of the most popular blogs I have posted. To continue the conversation, here are some tips to keep in mind as you consider applying to Cornell University early decision:
- Cornell University offers a binding early decision program. As part of the agreement, if you are admitted to Cornell, you must withdraw any applications you have filed at other colleges or universities. (Cornell does not offer an early action program)
- Submit your application materials by November 1, including your SAT/ACT and Subject Test scores (if required by the college or school you are applying to).
- After you have submitted your application, activate your self-service account and check your email for important messages from Cornell.
- If you are applying for financial aid, be sure to submit your materials by the Office of Financial Aid’s deadlines.
- Early decision applicants will be notified of their decisions in mid-December.
I know that the beginning of the school year is very busy for seniors and their parents and the early decision deadline is right around the corner. If you have any questions about the early decision process, please do not hesitate to contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office. We’re here to help!
