    @NePatsGirl Does she have a financial safety? Really hope she gets a great offer. You both worked so hard.

    We only applied to 4 and he was accepted to 4. WPI, UMass Honors, UMaine Honors, URI. Only the last two are really financially comfortable but DS is a practical guy.

    I applied to 10 schools (1 ED, 3 EA, 6 RD). I've gotten 3 acceptances and 1 rejection (you can probably guess which app it was..) I'm very happy with my acceptances so far. Out of the 6 I am waiting on, 1 is an out-of-this-world reach, 2 are high matches, 2 are low matches, and 1 last-choice in-state safety. If I had to predict, I would say that I will end up with 7-8 acceptances and 2-3 rejections, but I really love one of the universities I was accepted into so far- it all comes down to financial aid/merit after that!

    My kiddo applied to 9, one acceptance and one likely letter. 7 more pending. Thank goodness March is here!

    @NEPatsGirl, like your D, Barnard is one we are waiting for. I can't find any info about decision date other than that listed on the CC decision dates list - which seems unofficial. What date do you have on your fridge for them? :)

    @BSGPeanut101 ~ I have 7 pm on March 25th (same day as Vassar at 5 pm). That'll be a day to remember, one way or another lol.
  • NEPatsGirlNEPatsGirl Registered User Posts: 2,795 Senior Member
    @gearmom ~ Umass Honors is her true safety (because they are non-profile and the NPC is pretty accurate) and she has been invited to the BioTap there as well. But honestly, if a safety is characterized as a school she would be happy to attend, no, she doesn't have one. Of her safeties, UMass is by far the superior school choice for her. We'll be visiting St. Mikes in VT this weekend. My hope is one of the RD schools pans out but if they don't I'd like to see St Mikes or UScranton come close to the UMass cost, giving her three choices. I was joking that we've spend endless days travelling and many thousands of $$ trying to get our list together and she'll end up at UMass in the end lol....she didn't think that was funny :neutral_face: I wish it didn't have the state school stigma...its a great school.
  • gearmomgearmom Registered User Posts: 3,904 Senior Member
    Only in New England does a state school have a stigma. Students from many other states want to go to UMass. Ironically, she would probably receive the best education there since it is a top school with the 5 colleges as a bonus. And in the rear view mirror, it could be the best decision. She could make important professional connections. She could fall in love there. Could really be the best.

    Agreed.
