Applications – get ’em in!

Just a formality at this point, friends. I surely need not remind you any further that the application deadline is TODAY. 11:59:59 EST, to be exact, but let’s not get overly literal here. I can assure you that there is very little value in waiting until the actual last minute of the deadline to submit, and that doing so is likely to create quite a lot of additional anxiety for you.

One week left!

Do I have your attention, applicants? Good. Just making sure everyone remembers that the January 10 application deadline is one measly week away. Having sufficiently jolted you awake, I can now add context and caveats: please do submit your application by the deadline, but don’t sweat it if you have a heel-dragging recommender, or have a test score report that doesn’t arrive quite on time. If we have all your outstanding materials by February 1 we can usually avoid delays in processing your application.

Early Notification deadline – November 10

We’ve had a few blustery, rainy days here lately. Temperatures are getting cooler, and your Minister of Deadline Reminders and Other Action Items is hunkered down with his assistant. It seems as good a time as any to check in with current applicants planning to submit by the Early Notification (EN) deadline, who by now should be likewise hunkered down with their applications. The EN deadline is just a few weeks from now, on November 10.

Spring enrollment application deadline

Things are happening quickly around here, friends. Talk of application deadlines around this time of year may seem a bit of lighthearted japery, but don’t get caught napping. Take a look at the calendar, and note that it’s already mid-September. For those interested in January 2020 enrollment at Fletcher, the clock is ticking. October 10, one short month away, is the deadline for submitting your application!

More deadlines. More deadlines?

Are you tired of deadline reminders yet? If you’ve already submitted your application, it’s fair if your answer is “oh indeed,” and you can safely disregard this post. If, however, you weren’t able to submit your application by the previous January 10 deadline, I’ll underscore that it’s not too late! Most Fletcher degree programs have a couple more deadlines remaining, so there’s still ample time to submit your application for fall 2019 enrollment.

Deadline reminder: one week to go!

Regular readers may have been happy to have a bit of a respite in recent days from my incessant deadline reminders. Repetitive? Definitely. Tedious? Perhaps. Important? Absolutely! One reason January 10 is the largest deadline of the admissions cycle is that it’s the final deadline for applicants who wish to be considered for scholarship aid, i.e. almost everyone. There are a few more deadlines to come in February and even early March (most of those specific to individual degree programs), but our ability to consider those applications for scholarship support is extremely limited.

Happy holidays, and a few reminders

A quick reminder here that our office (and Tufts at large) is closed today and tomorrow for the Christmas holiday, as well as next Monday and Tuesday for New Year’s. Whether or not you observe these particular holidays, I hope the season is providing you with a bit of downtime, and hopefully the chance to spend some of it with family and friends. At least some of our staff will be here on the days between these dates, so you can still feel free to be in touch with any questions, and we’ll respond as soon as possible.

End of year odds and ends

Mid-to-late December is a bit of a strange time here in Admissions, as there’s a feeling of things simultaneously accelerating and winding down. We’re busy preparing for the arrival of our new “Januarian” cohort in just under a month, and we recently released decisions for our Early Notification applicants. Have I mentioned before that we also have another major application deadline approaching on January 10 (I think I must have at some point)? That’s still plenty of time for those of you working on your applications, but you should be very much in the weeds with it by now. We’re still around and available to answer whatever questions you may have as the deadline gets closer, but be aware that Tufts (inclusive of our office) will be closed for the holidays on December 25, 26, and 31, as well as January 1.
