Programs PhD application deadlines

Hi all,
When are the deadlines for PhD applications in the northern hemisphere?

In the UK, I think (physics at least) deadlines vary from January to March.
In the US application deadlines are typically earlier, but it varies by the program. My graduate program (University of Colorado) had a deadline of Jan 1 this year. I notice Berkeley, UCLA and Stanford had deadlines of Dec. 15 & 16, and University of Michigan had a deadline of Jan 15.

Most graduate programs make decisions/offers by April 15.
