HURRY UP … AND WAIT

So, you’ve spent the last few months frantically working to meet your college deadlines.  You’ve done draft after draft of “Why do you want to go to Dream U?”, politely nagged your teachers to send in recommendations, camped out in your counselor’s office to make sure your transcripts have been sent and your fingers have blisters from keying in the endless customer service prompts at College Board to find your lost SAT scores.   And, then, you wait.  And you wait.  And you wait some more.   Well, the waiting is ALMOST over for early deadline schools.  According to Top Tier Admissions,  here’s when you can expect your answers:
