Discover What Being Waitlisted Means
May is here! May 1st was the deadline for most college decisions. Congratulations to those seniors who’ve made their college choice!
While most high school seniors have been accepted into a college, some may find they’ve been given the option to be waitlisted. You and your student will want to gain a better understanding of what it means to be waitlisted and learn the next steps to take if they decide to be placed on the waitlist.
For college bound high school students, colleges like to see that you are committed to extracurriculars throughout the school year. They also like to see that you are making an effort to expand and stretch yourself over summer vacation. Exploring ways to use summer extracurricular activities to enhance college applications will be beneficial to help you stand out from other applicants who have similar test scores and GPAs.
