So You Got Into Notre Dame Early Action! Now What?

REA Admitted Student Profile



This is such an amazing accomplishment. Take time to celebrate, tell your friends and family, and thank everyone who has helped you along the way! 

Secondly, consider if you're ready to accept your offer. If you know that Notre Dame is the right fit for you, go ahead and accept. Congratulations, you are officially a Notre Dame student! If you are still considering other schools, it's time to make important decisions about your other applications. 

After you've accepted your offer, relax and get excited about attending Notre Dame. Explore majors, minors, and extracurriculars you may be interested in pursuing next year. Connect with other members of the Notre Dame community you know or other admitted students. Keep up Notre Dame Admissions on social media for student takeovers and virtual events to get a glimpse of student life and an opportunity to ask questions. 

Make the most of the rest of your senior year. While you should feel much more relaxed knowing you have already been admitted, try to keep your grades up and stay involved in your extracurriculars so that you can graduate feeling proud of your four years of hard work. Enjoy any special senior memories and spend as much time with friends and family as you can, especially in this unpredictable year. 

Finally, take a picture with the pennant in your admissions packet and post it with the hashtag #NDJourney to share the beginning of your Notre Dame journey with all of your friends and family.


Welcome to the Class of 2025!
