    I think so! I applied also. Deferred from Binghamton, so I'm a bit nervous. Though, I was accepted to Fordham. Do you know how holistic Geneseo is?
  • GCmom415GCmom415 Registered User Posts: 720 Member
    Thats funny...
    My daughter was accepted at Fordham too and Deferred at Bing...

    IN 2010 my son was waitlisted at Bing...and then got into Geneseo...

    It all just depends..have u been to Geneseo..its very nice up there.

    GCmom, what were your daughter stats/app strengths? I actually haven't visited Geneseo, I plan to if accepted though.

    I've had kids applying before; Geneseo is less competitive to get into than Binghamton especially for instate NY kids (Binghamton gives a lot of preference to out of state but not many out of state apply to Geneseo). A lot of kids who don't get in for fall will be given guaranteed admission for spring, they often go to community college first semester.

    One of my children attends Geneseo and loves it. It's a beautiful campus. My understanding is that Geneso considers all aspects of the application, including the parent statement.
  • awkwardcreationawkwardcreation Registered User Posts: 129 Junior Member
    I didn't have my parents do the parent statement at Geneseo or Hampshire C, the other school that offered it. What's the purpose of it, anyway?
  • Muffy333Muffy333 Registered User Posts: 2,108 Senior Member
    I think the purpose is to give the parents something to do other than call the admissions office with annoying questions...it might be useful if there is something really unique about the kid that the guidance counselor wouldn't mention. For instance, if the kid had some illness or developmental disorder most of his life but caught up to classmates in high school.

    I did the parent statement for my daughter.
    She has taken 5 Ap's. All honors in the 4 yrs.
    Her GPA is about a 3.8 and this half of the year she is doing great! Last quarter she had a 98 average. All grades should be send again for the first half on senior year. I hope they look at that.
    Problem is her SAT's are only a 1210. Her math is strong 680, reading weaker.
    Her plan is secondary ED in Math.
    National Honor Society
    She works, tutors chem and babysits.
    I think she is above Oneonta academically but not sure if she will be accepted to Geneseo.
    Makes me sad cause I know its a good fit for her.
    This wait is just horrible.

    My Daughter was also deferred from Binghamton. Truthfully I like the look and feel of geneseo for her over binghamton. We appied to geneseo but never got the Parent statement request. Is this something you send on your own or do you need to be prompted by Geneseo to send one? Where would I find the statement form?

  • alexi123alexi123 Registered User Posts: 3 New Member
    There is a link to the Parent Statement in the Geneseo website under Freshman applications. (I think it's Step 4).
  • ognyusaognyusa Registered User Posts: 50 Junior Member
    Why Geneseo doesn't have any admission status check?
    I have no clues as if the application materials are completed or not.
    Also, does anyone have heard anything about the RD decision date this year? How many people applied? Any chance they will release decision before Mar. 1?
    Post your stats please!
