    Host: What are rolling admissions?

    Andrew Battaile: Some schools have what's called rolling admissions. Whereas other schools have a set calendar where they have deadlines that are firm. Rolling admissions schools review applications as they come in and then let students know as they decide. So if your son or your daughter wants to know right away and may be there are a little bit more anxious and they would think that it is better to find out as soon as possible if there is a school with rolling admissions that might be a good thing for your child.
