    I copied the above format from the previous year and started the thread not knowing there was a particular month to start it or if it has to a be by a select individual. I saw where in the past this thread was started in January and another thread listing the Accepted Colleges was made in November (it just doesn't have the background info). I know some persons have already made decisions personally so I didn't think anything of it. I forgot when I posted DSs info it couldn't be updated as we went along, for that I am deeply sorry for a misguided post. I've requested it to be deleted @actorparent1 .

    PARENTS with college choices made: Copy and post with your child's info as they make their acceptances. For those currently in prescreens, just disregard this thread until you have made your decision and then come back and share your child's success and college choices.

    @chenggang I think there were several threads that people had when acceptances started coming in... I personally found those very helpful in terms of timing and when to audition for my D this year . other thread " the final decision...." thread was usually the whole great story of the process......I have attached those threads for reference so this years class can decide what we should start posting ( mainly for the benefit of future classes in my opinion)

    Personally, I like the format of this thread the best. Perhaps we can add the date the decision was posted for the applicant for future classes. I also plan to add academic stats to my D's final decisions only because at least two of her schools are based solely on GPA, SATs, personal insight questions and do not include a prescreen or audition. Unfortunately, in my search of CC I found past applicants accepted to these programs but no such stats listed.

    @onette helpful information--I am trying to share a list with our small college prep (academic program, where son is the only senior applying for MT/acting) college counselors a list of the schools honoring the new date(s). It does seem we need to contact each of the schools he's w/l and accepted and check with financial aid and honors programs, if applicable. I am somewhat confused about how honors programs manage admission during wait list status; one large school where son is waitlisted (he won't let me post names till he decides; I know, I hate it, too!) automatically showed his honors college admit status as soon as he paid a housing deposit. For further discussion of housing deposit vs enrollment deposit vs refundable and non refundable housing deposit, pm me? Or?

    @allfour1 - that is odd you wouldn’t be able to learn status of honors admission until deposit?? For many students, that would be necessary info to make that final decision??? I would reach out to regular admissions and ask. Or maybe the theatre department? To see if they could help be a conduit to honors?

    @onette it could have been coincidence, or maybe honors admissions was stuck in their multilayered system. Biggest, most complicated portal of all the schools we're working on. Yes going to ask one of his w/l schools program directors about honors--it is an automatic admit honors program and assumed he would have heard already.

    @allfour1 - I agree with @onette; seems odd. My D heard back from all the Honors Colleges/Programs she applied to without having to make any type of deposit. I think something just got lost in the shuffle

    We chased down the missing Honors College invite and it was an oversight and we've sorted it. No deposit required.
