Colby College Class of 2023 RD

Hey guys! Since many of us have applied to Colby as an RD applicant this year and as I didn't see any threads for RD applicants, thought I would make one. Go ahead and post your questions, stats or anything else for discussion. Good luck!

    I met a psych professor last year at a trustee dinner and she was great. My impression is that the department is really strong.

    My guess is March 15th. Last year the decisions came out on March 16th at 3 pm, the year before it was the 17th at 3 pm. The trend seems to be the third Friday of March at around 3 pm.

    Did anyone else receive an email about The Bunche Scholars Program? My DD got one and if she is interested in being considered, she just needs to reply to the link. I’m not trying to jump the gun, but I’m thinking they must feel that she’s a strong candidate for RD admissions (she is a URM). I’m definitely crossing my finger and toes that this is a good sign!

    @toomanykiddos My daughter received an email about the Presidential Scholars Program, and after looking at old CC threads, it seems that students who were considered for either the Bunche or Presidential did get it. I'd take it as a good sign!

    Are you sure hviewer? I also received an email about the Presidential Scholars Program. But from what I read I think it is sent to every applicant. It also specifically says " The Presidential Scholar selection process is entirely separate from Colby's holistic admissions application review."

    Is there any applicant who didn't recieve this email?

    @[email protected] I didn't! Actually I haven't gotten any updates from Colby since they sent me the portal link.

    @Zeylanite my DD hadn’t received any other updates either prior to this Bunche Scholars information. Although I would like to think it’s a good sign, it may just be something they sent to all URMs who applied.

    I'm a URM and didn't get the Bunche email, but I did get the presidential scholar program email. Related to those emails, someone pointed out to me that at the bottom of the email it does say unsubscribe, so would that mean that it's just an email sent to everyone?

    Sorry, just an edit to my post above, I meant to say it looks like those who received the email in past years got in to the college. I'm sure not everyone nominated for the scholar programs is ultimately selected. But I do still think this was sent to a select group of applicants.

    I received the email for the presidential as well, seems like a good sign. Has anyone ever been rejected from the school after receiving the offer?

    I received the email for the presidential program too, does anyone know how they evaluate who gets into the program after receiving student preferences?

    Seems like a lot of people are getting the email. After looking into old posts, the wording has changed a bit (at least for me). Previously, it was closer to "we think you would be a good candidate" . Now, mine was less inviting, more like "to be considered". Maybe they are sending more out, and less selectively?

    Apparently they do it to try to entice candidates who could get into slightly more competitive schools to be more interested/ willing to go to Colby if accepted.
    I don’t know if this is true, I was told so by the head of the parents executive committee

    @apstudent2019 To me that seems like a near-guaranteed admission, kind of like a likely letter.
