So it’s about 7:40 a.m. as I write, and I can hear five voices from all corners of the Admissions Office as current students reach out to newly admitted students who live in a time zone 12 to 14 hours ahead of ours. We’ll be holding these call sessions throughout the week to connect with as many people as we can. It’s a great way to draw out questions that may not otherwise have been asked. We generally feel that the more incoming students know, the better prepared they are to make a decision on where to pursue their graduate studies and then to succeed at Fletcher.
It’s a week loaded with activities like the call sessions. We’ll also hold online chats, two information sessions, and receptions in several different cities around the world. And then we gear up for our two-day Open House for admitted students. As of today, only a small percentage of our admitted students have made their decision to enroll (or not to enroll, for that matter). Over the next two weeks, we’ll learn much more about who will make up the incoming class in September.
