I’ve been so wrapped up in Fletcher admissions, that I almost forgot that my son and his friends are likely to be hearing soon about their college applications, too. (It should have been further up front in my mind, since he called me at work last Saturday to tell me he had heard good news from one school.) On Saturday, he had a few friends over for dinner. One had just heard that day from his first choice — a happy kid! One of the friends is a junior, just getting started on the whole deal, and my son and the remaining friend are still waiting to hear from a bunch of schools.
Before dinner was over, I had a call from the mother of yet another friend who wanted to know about wait lists. Her son had been offered a spot on the wait list of his first choice school and he wasn’t sure what, if anything, to do. (I’ll post some wait list advice for Fletcher applicants later this week.)
By the end of dinner, I was reminded that work has eased up, but there’s still a lot to be done at home before the undergrad application process is complete.
