High School Applications Don’t Rush. Take Your Time. Use the full application window to your advantage! Early Application Myths Applications open next week, but whether you apply on October 2 or December 15, you have the same chances of receiving an offer to a program of your choice! It is a common misconception that applying early gives families an advantage in selection, when in fact, it does not.
