Official Master List of 2016 Prep School Decisions

edited March 2016 in Prep School Admissions
NEW AND IMPROVED FOR 2016 WITH ALL CAPS.

Note that this thread is intended to be for RESULTS only. So spare the stats and commentary (congratulation, commiseration, etc.) for other threads.

In past years, the well-intentioned formatting fell by the wayside quickly, so let’s just go for straight text (no bolding, no color, no italics) that is easy to cut and paste.

FORMAT:
Username (as it appears below your avatar): ACCEPTED: (list all schools where you were accepted); WAITLISTED: (list all schools where you were waitlisted); REJECTED: (list all schools where you were rejected)

When updating with your results, simply “cut and paste” the most recent list and add your name in alphabetical order (to make it easier for people to scan and find the kids they are rooting especially hard for). Don’t stress if your update crosses paths with another poster’s….it’s bound to happen, especially during “peak” hours. In the past, some well-intentioned/”too much time on their hands” (I used to resemble that remark!) parents have been known to clean up the list after/before normal business hours.

Generally speaking, you should only need one word for the school name, but if you need to clarify, make it short and sweet (see St. Andrew’s below).

So, what the list will start looking like is (using fictional screen names):

AKidWithDreams: ACCEPTED: Choate, Deerfield, Tabor; WAITLISTED: Exeter; REJECTED: None

BestSchool4Me: ACCEPTED: St. Andrew’s (DE), Exeter, Hill; WAITLISTED: Hotchkiss, Lawrenceville; REJECTED: Andover, St. Paul’s

TooSmartforLPS: ACCEPTED: Emma Willard, Thacher; WAITLISTED: Cate; REJECTED: Episcopal

...and so on

WHAT IF YOU ARE STILL WAITING FOR RESULTS FROM A SCHOOL?
This is your call, and I know people like to post as soon they get results from any school. Personally, I prefer to get all results and post once. However, if you would to prefer to share info as it comes in, I would advise just putting “WAITING ON: School X” AFTER the three “decision" categories (ex. ...REJECTED: Durmstrang; WAITING ON: Hogwarts; Beauxbatons)…BUT please take the time to update when the results do come in.

WAITLISTED?
Probably a good idea to read this thread:
