Deerfield Letters

edited February 2010 in Prep School Admissions
I received two letters from Deerfield. One is from the department chair of english. He gave me a brief glimpse of the department and said, "We'd love to see you here next year, and join us in expanding our literarly realm." When I emailed him he said my essay was really articulate, and my teacher rec. was fantastic. Also I received another one from football. IT baiscally talked about the program (already talked to coach) and last paragraph it said that I should consider accepting the Deerfield challenge. On the bottom he wrote- that he would love to see me in the Big Green and White.

Should all this be taken as a good sign? DId anyone receive letters like these? Also I never mentioned to them English and football were my highpoints.

(PS- I got similiar letters from Choate and Andover)

    I got similar ones from Middlesex. One from the Math department head and one from the science department head. They basically both just talked about the courses offered and the extracurriculars relating to their subjects. They both ended with "we hope to see you on campus again". So I think that it is pretty common to receive one of these letters because (bold) I (bold) received one and I am not spectactular.

    I didn't receive any from Andover or Choate. They must hate me. Haha

    uhmm how am I stalker? You puit up a chance thread so it could be chanced by everyone. So I believe it is contradicting to call me a stalker when you put a chance thread to be read by anyone.

    Plus why would u **** ur chance thraeds? dont u want the honest turth

    So you went throught about 15 pages of chance threads and just happened to read mine. it was posted in like in June so you probably would have done a search on me to find it.

    And I care more about not revealing personal information than having the "honest truth" given to me by a bunch of high school kids (and some parents) who have relatively little information on what goes on in prep school admissions.

    Hey, do you think you could chance me? I've read some of your posts and I'm looking into Exeter so I figured you could help since you actually go there. Thanks!


    U asked my brother to chance u, and he told me to tell u that u had good chances. sooo no i didnt, u asked for it and i gave it to u, or my brother did. Also if u dont want the honest truth why are u on CC? whats the point of pointing ur threads on this site and such? Is it jsut for fun and wast people's time. That is truly a waste of time and horrible time management and sadly no life if u just spend ur time **** on this time.

    Great job

    I dont get why you are keep saying the "honest truth".

    I would make an assumption that you are not an admission officer (and if you are, I applaude you for acting like a high school kid.) Therefore you can only make blanket statements regarding my stats. These blanket statements are not always the truth because you always see people with 99% SSATs with other amazing stats getting rejected from top schools. If someone wanted the "honest truth" they could just wait until March 10th. This shows that I obviously wasn't looking for the truth. I may have been looking for false accolades in order to boost my confidence but I can't remember. I can assure you I would never waste my time with something meaningless. There is always a reason why I put my time into something even if it isn't that obvious why.

    I could ask you the same thing (why you waste your time here). You always make posts such as the first post in this thread that comes off as some kind of arrogant bragging maybe in order to receive compliments from strangers. Is that the reason you waste your time on this website?

    What I mean by the honest truth, is what others thought. See I "waste" my time on this site b.c I would to discuss boarding school admission with other peers who would like to attend. I would like to know what my competition and possibly future classmates would be like. From what I see, you yourself spent a lot of time asking to be chanced and asked others about what they thought b.c u were genuinally curious. I also don't try to brag and if I sound like I do, I'm really sorry. I remeber you bragging about being a missionary and how that was your hook.

    Conclusively I wish your best endeavers for boarding school apps and would like to reccomend you don't post bogus threads and waste people's time. If you don't want to know your chances and the possibilies of attending the schools you are applying to why are u on this site? Lying about stats and ur chances is just wasting someone's time. Good job

    First, get your facts right. I never made a post saying that I was a missonary and that was my hook. You must have mistaken me for someone else.

    And this site isn't all about getting chanced, as you may have thought by your post 2 above this one.

    And everyone embellishes their chance threads. And how do you know that my whole chance thread was a lie? You don't know me. And if you haven't read the stickied thread it said that you shouldn't post your real information so I am assuming many others altered their information in order to not reveal who they were.

    If you don't like the word arrogance you can use sarcasm or a some form of taunting in order to receive compliments.

    Do you like being better than everyone else? because that is how many of your threads portray you.

    YOu dont need to put ur name and adress but ppl use chance threads to find their chances for a particular school. And how do I know u lied?

    You said above-

    And I just added half of that stuff so people wouldn't know my real ecs. I don't actually play tennis....



    Really how ecs tell who u are? Do u know how many ppl play tennis who apply or other stuff u mentioned. You didnt even mention what state ur in so how would ppl know?

    Sorry about the missionary stuff but whats the point of making up bs stuff on ur chance thread? Make ppl feel bad?

    I may have exaggerated when I said I added half of the stuff, maybe just stuff here and there.

    And if you have read other threads, you could figure out what state I live in.

    And I am just being safe by not telling the whole truth, some people put their whole life in one thread which is kind of ridiculous.

    "Sorry about the missionary stuff but whats the point of making up bs stuff on ur chance thread? Make ppl feel bad?"

    Did you not even read my posts? I never said I wanted to make people feel bad. I said I may have posted in order to receive some confidence so I don't second guess myself as much as I would without any.

    Umm seeing as I don't go to exeter and I've already chanced you like twice....

    Please don't turn and attack me but both of you are coming off as braggatory, thats probably not how you mean to sound but thats they way it comes across...

    And btw I'm the MK, is that a problem?
