Wow! I can’t believe it’s almost May 1st. Where has the time gone?
I want to congratulate you on your acceptances personally. It has been a stressful period, but you have made it to another point on your path to college which is May 1st – National College Decision Day!
If you haven’t already done so, please follow the directions you received in your acceptance packet to officially accept your admissions and pay any required deposit. At this point, some colleges may ask you also to select your housing and a date you will attend your first-year student orientation. If you are having a hard time coming up with the deposit, contact the school’s admissions office immediately! They may be willing to provide an extension (or may reduce/waive the deposit).
If you need any help with this process, please contact me as soon as possible. For those colleges you will not be attending, be sure to notify them as well.
Before I go, I can’t miss sharing an opportunity to possibly win up to $5,000 from College Board. This year, College Board is celebrating the hard work of students with their #Collegiance social media campaign. They are asking students to pledge their #Collegiance by announcing their college decision on Instagram using video, Boomerang, or a photo. For more details, visit collegiance.wcm.collegeboard.org
As a reminder, be sure to check your email on a daily basis for any communication from your college.
Congratulations once again on your achievement!
