    I'd say pretty good, but you still can't know for sure if you'll get accepted or not. I applied to 2017-2019 didn't get to the last stage tho, but I'll be applying again to 2018-2020 and hopefully I get in

    Thank you! Do you know when the applications open up? I'm kind of afraid for my GPA though...

    that depends on your national committee, ours starts in January (Egypt). Don't worry, your national committee will surely know if you'll fit in or not, your extracurriculars can overweigh your GPA

    Please don't have very high hopes, cause if you get rejected, you'll be devastated. Remember, the world is full of opportunities although UWC is one of a kind, the world won't end if you don't get in.

    Hey, is there anyone who's hoping to apply for the 2018-2020 school session? If you have already applied in the past, please share your experience. It'd be most appreciated. Thanks!

    For US Last year it was September 24. The only thing I'm worried about is I am applying to be a senate page and that could be Jan-jun of junior year so I emailed them. I am also going to email my senator after I finish the page app and ask that if I get accepted could she fit me into a different term
