All Hallow's Eve Application Fright Fest

In scary movies, when the characters least expect it, they become terrified by a frightening thought, vision or threat. That's the experience of some high school seniors this week. While they were busy with classes, jobs, activities and trying to bask in the glory of senior-dom, a sinister deadline was coiling its tentacles around their necks. 

While some of their friends escaped the terror by working on college application escape plans last August, many began to feel the looming deadline tighten around them this week and realized they had to move fast to survive. Most of them have no idea how much work is in store for them. Many will give up and decide to apply during the regular admission period.

Seniors who plan to apply during early application periods won't have time for Halloween parties on October 31 unless they have completed their applications, sent their test scores and transcripts and letters or recommendation. 

Not all colleges use a November 1 deadline for early application and not all colleges offer early application options. For those that do, November 1, November 15 and December 1 are the most popular deadline dates. 

The significance of early deadlines is that they usually mean finding out if an application is accepted or rejected early. Early applications can also be tied to honors college and special scholarship options.
