When should I accept an acceptance letter?

I have acceptance letters from a few colleges, but I am not completely sure which I should accept. All of them have difference enrollment dates. When is a good deadline to decide by?

Hi Kasey E. I see that you posted this question a little while ago so I hope my answer to you (or others who may read this response) is still helpful.

I think it's great to have options...this question, though, makes me wonder what decisions were made in the schools that were chosen. I wonder... because for many students who apply to college, they would jump at the chance, meaning there is no waiting, to accept an acceptance letter especially if the acceptance letter is for a school that was really high on the student's list. Many students will apply to schools that give them what they think they want/need but often there is that one school...the "I hope I get accepted" school :)...the type of acceptance letter that many of us have seen go viral when the student realizes they have been accepted.

Beyond the list of preferred schools, many schools are pretty clear about their deadlines so in general, you shouldn't have to guess on when you have to respond.

It is my hope that research on educational curriculum, level of comfort, costs, campus life and some of the other very important aspects of choosing a school have been researched before applying.

Hope this advice is helpful and best of luck!

Create a cost versus benefit for all the colleges and the college providing best return of investment should be the first choice.
