Keep in mind that being set back does not harm you in any way; It simply means that they are postponing their decision. I`ve heard that applying an early decision can actually help your chances of being a young bit (even if you`re sidelined), because colleges tend to make offers instead for those who think they`re accepting them. If you live in the vicinity of Blacksburg, they come one day to your HS and talk to you a few months before the early decision and let you know if you… IIRC. The benefits of being a townie. I doubt very much that the 90% of the deferred statistics are established. My sister and I made an early decision (in-state), and none of us were valédictorians or anything. Doesn`t it just mean that they made you people`s regular decision in? Why does it matter? I looked privately at university because I`m applying early for VT and I`m freaking out. I came across this information that came from a user who said their uncle was in the admissions department (which is quite skeptical) I applied (in-state) early decision in 2012 from high school to higher school of science. I had a 4.2 gpa in high school, a 27 on ACT and I wrote all the personal statements and sent rec letters. I was accepted an early decision, I learned in mid-December. The Early Decision is recommended for first graduates with a strong academic qualification, who selects Virginia Tech as the first school of choice and intends to register when admission is offered to them. Students who are interested in the early decision plan must choose this option on the application and apply on or before November 1.
All supporting scientific information may be submitted after November 1, but should be available by mid-November. Applicants who have made an advance decision are informed of their authorization decision by mid-December and a down payment must be made by January 15. Applicants may be deferred and considered impartially in the early action review process. However, in some cases, a student may be denied admission and is not considered with the pools of applicants with a premature or regular decision. Students who have been denied admission during the early decision process should not reapply for an early or regular decision authorization, but may be considered for admission after at least 12 points after a bachelor`s degree at another accredited university or university. Sounds good? At first I thought that yours in the state candidates were not postponed. But if so, I`m in trouble for an early decision from NOVA, which applies for Pamplin (3.77 WGPA 3.55 UWGPA 29 ACT).
