    I think it might be this Friday. Hopefully it's the 15th.

    Here is the link to last year's regular decisions thread for Davidson: http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/davidson-college/1856403-davidson-college-rd-class-of-2020.html

    So with this, they got a notification via the application portal of Davidson, stating that the admission decisions was going to coming out on March 17th, 2016 but then, it was postponed until the 19th. I guess that is why they have not notified us yet because of that mishap with dates. I think they will tell us either two days or one day before they actually come out due to this; I could be wrong so take it with a grain of salt but it is interesting.

    Very Good Essay
    ROTC 4 Years high ranking
    Good Recs
    I'm not perfect cause my gpa could use some work (as im sure some of you are).

    @jkgreen27 That is very impressive!! I would kill for those standardized test scores but not my expertise.

    Yes let's make this more active for sure! But definitely no one be too nervous. Remember that everyone has something they are insecure about!
    But I absolutely love Davidson! I almost applied ED but was worried about the distance from home is all. It's a great school and I would love it there! Hoping for the best, and good luck everyone!

    @jkgreen27 -- South Florida here, too! And also literally borderline rank. Like I was 58 of 630 but when all the early enrollment kids' GPAs went in I fell out of top 10% (currently top 10.9% to be exact) despite my weighted GPA going up. Well, that and a C in calc. Very nervous that that mid year report took me out of the running. :-/

    My stats:
    29 ACT (34E, 29R, 27M, 25S, 29 Essay -- very uneven; never once completed any section but for writing and essay)
    1320 new SAT, submitted bc of my strong Essay score (22 of 24) but I don't think they even look at that, or at least not closely
    Focused ECs with leadership about which I am passionate and which relate to my majors of interest
    High demonstrated interest (visited three times and did the individual info session)
    Solid essays, though "Why Davidson" could have been better (read a little choppy and in hindsight it was a bit gimmicky)
    High rigor (11 AP's and 5 Dual Enrollment and all others honors)
    Great recs I think (esp peer by my friend at a peer LAC -- how great is it that they request this?)
    URM

    Anyway, good luck to us all. This is definitely my top choice. Couldn't apply ED bc of financial aid uncertainty and really hope that didn't drastically hurt my chances (esp due to that mid year report).

  • edgeook8edgeook8 Registered User Posts: 53 Junior Member
    @Shabeezy We're representing! I will ignore the fact that the two other SoFla applicants here have higher stats than me... haha. Good luck to us all!

    What is Davidsson's policy for aid for international students?
  • edgeook8edgeook8 Registered User Posts: 53 Junior Member
    Broward too! I'll message you more specifically -- I don't want to be found out. ;-)
  • jkgreen27jkgreen27 Registered User Posts: 104 Junior Member
    @londondad Davidson has been on a campaign for financial and international expansion so I would assume they would be better than most LAcs
