Princeton reintroduces early action applications

    When Princeton University eliminated its early decision application process in 2006 the school hoped other Ivy League schools would do the same. That didn’t exactly work.

    So the university has decided to reinstate its early admission program, beginning with the class of 2016. As the Princetonian reports, applicants must apply solely to the Princeton, but if accepted, don’t have to choose their school until spring. This is different from the university’ former early decision program, which required those who applied early to commit to Princeton’s acceptance letter.
