    is this invitation for the class of 08? when was the application due? sorry, i'm a minority very interested in amherst (visited 3 times) but never received an application for this open house

    The Diversity Open house is basically a program in which students who are interested in Amherst college apply to and if accepted, the 200 students that are selected get to spend the weekends at Amherst. Learning alot of different aspects on the college and basically having a good time. Amherst will fund all cost to attend the program even transportation. This basically alleviates the hesitation in applying. A lot more to be said but you already get the gist

    The application deadline has passed. as it was Aug. 15th but I geuss theres always next year

    Haven't heard yet from Amherst but I'm crossing my Fingers

    Ekkkk! i didnt get in...

    Im hoping a large reason was because my family is by no means low income and I guess they could tell when I wrote my parents were physicans..

    Thats ok. I got into kenyons atleast!

    I got a paper with all the dates on it and the schedule for the sept weekend. it says stuff like "be prepared to leave..." BUT I didn't get an acceptance letter, does this mean I got in??
  • sgtpepper08sgtpepper08 Registered User Posts: 566 Member

    So Authentic, waiting is horrible. My daughter got accepted to the
    Diversity Open House last year but she heard after many other people on line had. All the letters don't go out at once. She had a great time and was accepted early decision. She started classes on Tuesday and LOVES AMHERST!
  • google2008google2008 Registered User Posts: 417 Member
    I got a email today for acceptance.
  • So AuthenticSo Authentic - Posts: 1,241 Member

  • lmpwlmpw Registered User Posts: 617 Member

  • wen2huwen2hu Registered User Posts: 127 Junior Member
    just found out i got in today! yay!

    except i have prior engagements planned for the 29th...I had assumed I wouldnt get into DW especially since i sent in my application on the 21th

    Does anyone have a schedule that tells them when the events start on Saturday? I'm hoping if they're few, I may be able to fly in early sunday morning instead... =/
  • sgtpepper08sgtpepper08 Registered User Posts: 566 Member
