Couldn't find any threads for this, so I thought I'd start one. Hope you all are surviving this month of waiting!! Two questions:

1. Any idea when admission decisions are being released?
2. Has anyone received an idoc request?

    Yep. I can confirm, having gotten it straight from an admissions dean at Colgate, the results will be declared the morning of Saturday, March 21, 2020.

    Has anyone been receiving emails about the different learning communities? I was wondering if that was an indication that my daughter was admitted.

    I think they add all applicants to the mailing list.

    I'm not sure how confident I feel. Wonder if someone could help out.

    I have a 3.68UW and 4.42W bc I've taken 15APs and 8 honors classes.
    34 ACT.
    Pretty decent ECs: Varsity soccer captain; head of project where I coded an app for farmers; intern for a hospital; volunteer at financially struggling library; some other stuff

    Essays were pretty decent as well I thought. does my low UW gpa ruin my chances?

    My son was accepted! Similar profile as @Lilymelrose: 31 ACT and a 97 average, 3-sport athlete (not a star but a contributor), a few other ECs. Also not eligible for need-based aid.

    He’s still waiting for a handful of decisions, and has a $25k merit offer from Trinity. But Colgate is definitely a favorite.

    Accepted

    33 ACT, EC’s w’ leadership positions and major community service projects. Great LOR’s, good grades at rigorous private school. We have no hooks and did not visit Colgate. D did spend close to two days pouring over its website before writing her essays.

    Additional acceptances from Barnard and Colby.
