Anyone Still receiving marketing Mailers from boarding schools?

This is certainly wishful thinking on my part - especially with application submission dates having passed. DS just received a “Meet The Community That Will Help Your Child Thrive” piece. I know boarding school recruitment is much different from day school - so we don’t know what to expect.

    Yes, we got one from our favorite school last week. I was hoping it was a hint, but probably not. :(

    Last year, we received Valentines from a couple of schools signed by students. Also, we did receive marketing materials from schools that we never even inquired about - through May. I think some schools may have bought a list. We also received mail from L’Ville summer program, but never even inquired @ the school.

    We’re still receiving stuff for my son who’s a sophomore and applied 2 years ago.

    We're still receiving mailers from two colleges our son did not attend (and he graduates this year). And he even got a nomination to a service academy he didn't apply to. It never stops. Read NOTHING into these things. There are no subtle signals, hidden messages, signs, omens, portents, predictions, symbols, or ANYthing to deduce from the automated, irrational marketing machine. (I don't know why they think I need something enlarged I don't even have.) Names get on lists much more easily than they can be removed. That's why God invented the wastebasket.
