Take a Deep Breath…

While applying to college is necessary and a touch stressful, we hope that you are able to find the time in these early days of the new year to clear your head and wander about for a bit. Spend time with family and friends. Go outside! Read a book or two. Get away from all monitors (from handheld to computer to television). We know that your application is important, and we respect that this process means so much to you. That said, it is just one of many vital tasks you will complete over the course of your life. So please, take a deep breath and relax for a while. You’ve earned it.

What follows are some things to keep in mind relating to our process to help (we hope) set you further at ease:

  • Please give us until February 1 before reaching out with questions about the status of your application. It can take a few weeks for applications and supporting materials, regardless of whether they were submitted online or via mail, to be fully processed and entered into our system.
  • On interviews – interviewing has concluded for the year. There are no additional appointments available. We do not offer alumni interviews. Many students will be offered admission who did not interview with us.
  • Because we began reviewing applications in earnest in January, we are unable to meet individually with applicants who visit campus in the winter months. We are grounded, locked in our offices reading your responses, evaluating your transcripts, reviewing your recommendations. Thank you for understanding.
  • Early Decision II applicants– everything above applies to you as well! ED II decisions will be posted no later than February 15. (Unlike with our Early Decision plan, our ED II and Regular Decision admission plans are not rolling!)

We wish you great luck throughout this process!
