My son was deferred. Quite a blow and very disappointing. He had to change classes at the beginning of the school year and received a C in a class, as a result of the change in levels [honors to cp]. Knew it would be glaring on College apps, but had hoped that given it wasn't in anything related to his intended major it would have been 'forgiven', given his good grades in all of his other classes. Naviance doesn't account for those sorts of things.
If you would like to call me in the office tomorrow I'd be glad to go over your son's file with you so that we can look at the reasons he got deferred and how he can improve things for when we review his file next month.
Call 800-SMC-8000 and ask for Mallory.
Barky5 and Mainehsmom - tell your daughter and son congrats for me! Merit scholarship information will be sent within the next couple weeks.
Congrats, CapeCodLady. My son applied RD and received his acceptance letter today as well. I am really looking forward to Accepted Students Day, as we have not yet SEEN Saint Michael's! Our older son has a close friend who is a recent graduate and he loved his time there.
Congrats to the sons of both CapeCodLady8 and dreamer6!
If you are looking for more information for the Class of 2014 you can head to Saint Michael's College - New Class Information where you'll find information about the upcoming Accepted Student Days, a video from last year's Orientation, info about student housing, and more!
And of course you can always contact us with any questions: 1800-SMC-8000
Thanks Dreamer. Congrats to your son as well!
Thanks again, Mallory. I checked out the link and will have to share it with my son so he can see all the great videos and information. Are there always alot of whistles at Orientation?? lol
