Now that early decision notifications are being received, we want to offer all who have gained acceptance our most heartfelt congratulations. This is a significant accomplishment— celebrate your success. And please remember to send in the required paperwork to secure your spot in the class of 2017!
For those of you who have been deferred, take a deep breath. Talk to your guidance counselor about your plans. Think about whether your early decision school is truly your first choice. If you believe the answer is yes, communicate that thought to your admissions rep by letter, sending it both by snail mail and email. Express the reasons this is your top school and offer to provide any additional information they may want to further support your application.
Many of you are working on applications right now— whether polishing up an essay or completing the activities section of the Common App. Try your best to maintain focus and finish in time to fully review and proofread before deadlines arrive. You have certainly worked very hard and we applaud your efforts.
