College Options: It’s Not Too Late!
iLEAD Seniors: College is just around the corner. If you have not started on your application(s), there is still time. Most applications are due in January and winter break is a perfect time to finish up your essays and activity lists.
Don’t miss your deadlines! Here are some helpful things to know:
Early Action 2: Many colleges have non-binding early deadlines which means you don’t need to make a decision until May 1. If you submit your application by the deadline, you will receive your admission decision early. While the first round of early action deadlines has passed, many colleges have a second deadline in January.
Early Decision 2: The first round of early decision applications has passed, but some colleges have a second round of deadlines in early or mid-January. If there is a college that is your first choice and you know it is affordable, then applying early decision often gives you an advantage over students applying in the regular round. Remember early decision is binding, meaning you sign a contract with that school and state you will attend.
Regular Decision: Regular decision deadlines begin around January 1 and continue through the spring. It is important that you check the college in which you are interested to ensure you meet their deadline.
Rolling Admission: Many colleges continue to accept applications through the spring and summer. Check each college website for more information.
Financial Aid: Most colleges have specific FAFSA deadlines. Check each college website for the specific deadline dates. California public colleges have a March 2 deadline.
Don’t wait! If you need help sorting out your options, please reach out to Laura Kazan, our college advisor. Many deadlines are during iLEAD’s winter break. Mrs. Kazan will be checking emails, but she may not return them immediately so write her as soon as possible with any questions!
