A Premium Study Abroad and Careers Destination for Top Colleges and Jobs


What is the acceptance process?

Posted on Jun 28, 2016

When the letters and emails from colleges start pouring in, there are three potential outcomes:

1) You are Accepted – Congratulations. Once all your acceptance letters are in, review the offers carefully and take your time in deciding the best fit. Most colleges will give you until May 1st to make your decision.

2) You are Rejected – don’t be disheartened. Wait for all the colleges to reply before you start thinking of worst-case scenarios. If you are not accepted anywhere, you will need to reevaluate your situation but it’s not the end of the world.

3) Some students may discover that they have been waitlisted, meaning neither accepted nor rejected. The waitlist is the college’s safety net, meaning that if a number of accepted students do not attend, then the college can fill those spots with these students.
