As I mentioned back in March, Fletcher Admissions will provide feedback on unsuccessful applications to applicants who may want to reapply.Â At the risk of increasing our workload, if you plan to reapply to Fletcher, I strongly encourage you to request feedback on your application.Â To do so, send us an email.Â Your message should include the following:
â™¦Â A sentence or two for the request, noting the date of your original application.
â™¦Â Any special questions you have about your application.
â™¦Â Your plans for the coming year.
â™¦Â Your expected timeline for reapplying.
In this recent admissions cycle, we reviewed applications from people who requested feedback, followed the advice, and were admitted this time around.Â We also read applications from reapplicants who didn’t request feedback, made the same mistakes a second time, and were not offered admission.Â Asking for feedback and following the suggestions can give a real boost to an applicant.
Last, now that I’ve encouraged you to make us work harder, please be patient.Â Reviewing applications takes time, and there’s already a bunch of waiting requests.Â We’ll get back to you as soon as possible, but it may take a little while.
