Early Decision (ED)
If you decide to apply early decision via PTCAS, you can apply to only one institution. Your PTCAS application must be submitted by August 15 and all supporting documentation (GRE scores, transcripts, letter of recommendation, etc.) must be received by this date. We will notify all ED applicants by September 25, 2018 of their admission decision. If you are accepted to the ED program to which you apply, you must enroll that fall. If you are deferred at early decision, your application will automatically be re-considered during the regular decision process and also released to submit to other PTCAS programs. If you are not selected at early decision, your application will be released and you can apply to other PTCAS programs.
