Presentation Transcript

  1. Are you applying to College? Early Action Of the different accelerated application options colleges offer, early action is perhaps the most popular, yet most misunderstood one. With early action, you submit and finalize your college applications, including high school transcripts, standardized test score reports. This is in contrast to regular application deadlines, which for most colleges are two months later than the early action deadlines.

  2. Early Decision Early decision application is often confused with early action application. While the two have similar deadlines and decision notification dates, if you're admitted to a college that you applied to via early decision, you are obligated to accept that college's acceptance offer and enroll at that college the following fall.

  3. VIP Application VIP applications are offered only to top-notch students who score above a minimum cut-off (typically 95th percentile or higher) on the ACT college entrance exam. The idea behind VIP applications is to attract high-caliber students to colleges that they otherwise may not have considered applying to. If you choose to submit the VIP application, you'll get top priority turnaround, with a decision in about three weeks.

  4. What Does It Mean To You? What does this all mean for the college-bound high school student, and how does it affect your planning and decision-making? Most students wait until the fall of their senior year to request recommendation letters from teachers, draft application essays, and take any remaining required standardized tests like SAT tutor Subject Tests. But if you have any intention of applying on an early action, early decision, or VIP basis, then you need to get the ball rolling with applications before the summer, not after!
