In summary, the application deadlines for universities are typically university-wide for undergraduate level, but it is best to check the specific university's website for more information. In some cases, acceptance or decline letters are all distributed at once, causing frustration for students waiting for a response.

Simple question, are applications deadlines usually university-wide or does it vary from department to department (or college to college)? Or does the system depend on the whole university you're looking at?

Thanks in advance.

It usually always is university wide.

What's even weirder is that even some acceptance/decline letters are all distributed at once; for example, you wouldn't know if you've gotten into Purdue University until December 1 or not. I'm not sure why universities do this, but it can be extremely agitating to the students waiting go an acceptance letter.
