* Disclaimer these can change always check and update with schools because they control when they open up their applications, not us of course!*

*Second Disclaimer SCG called every one of these schools. But we cannot guarantee the person(s) we spoke with at each is sure they are giving us this coming cycle’s agreed upon release date versus the previous cycles. Nor can we be certain they were giving us the date applications can be viewed (not what we asked for) versus submitted (what we asked for) At times, it is not that precise. *
