Global Entry Semester at Colby

FrydaddyFrydaddy 56 replies10 threadsRegistered User Junior Member
The Colby application asks whether the applicant would be interested in Global Entry Semester. Can checking the box make the difference between being admitted and not being admitted (especially for a student that may be on the cusp w/respect to grades and stats)? Or are admitted students sometimes given a choice of either regular admission or the GES program?

    I would confirm with admissions but I don't think you would be offered GES without checking that box. I would guess (but don't know) that this would increase your chances of being admitted. More upperclassmen do spring semester abroad so this is an important way of managing housing.

    I know one kid who did it and thought it was great. But you have to want an immersive language experience in one of those 2 languages. ...

    My daughter was admitted and did the GES (France - other group was in Spain). I don’t think it makes a difference in terms of admissions and GES is not to set because of a lack of housing. Colby is great.

    I am wondering how your daughter felt starting in January having been abroad for her freshman fall?

    Did you ever get feedback about the Global Entry Program? I too am interested.
