How soon are rolling admission decisions made?

Last updated:

Private schools conducting rolling admissions year-round typically make admission decisions within four to six weeks of application submission. It’s always worth asking the school what to expect as decisions may come quicker in late spring and summer as the new school year approaches if the school still has openings.

It’s also worth noting that some private schools conduct a traditional admissions process with a set application deadline, candidate review period, and decision letter date, before moving to rolling admissions throughout the late spring and summer to fill remaining openings. Most schools have approximately three months between the traditional application deadline and decision notification dates.
