Have you looked at the calendar lately? According to mine, there's just one week left before November 1. The first day of November every year strikes fear into the hearts of many thousands of high school seniors around the world. Why is that?
Well, if you're in the know, and you probably are if you're here reading a blog about college admissions, you know that November 1 is the traditional Early Action (EA) and Early Decision (ED) deadline for most colleges offering an early acceptance decision program of some kind. For all these early applicants, the six weeks following November, up through mid-December, can be one of the most stress filled, tense, and uncertain periods of their lives.
