Do emails from schools prior to admission have any significance?
DS is applying to Choate and Loomis for 2018 as a Freshman. Loomis has been sending him a ton of emails from various department heads and coaches where his resume is strong based on pre application information. The emails are about all the ways Loomis excels in those areas....We have not received much from Choate where he will be a legacy, if admittted. There was just one welcome information packet. HIs elder sibling who had admissions in both schools had a similar pattern, prior to admission......although another choate parent says they got tons of emails prior to their kid's admission at Choate.
Do these emails mean anything in terms of the schools interest in the candidate or are these pure advertisement emails irrespective of the candidate and their admission chances? FYI.....DS has not submitted the full applications in these schools yet.
Not sure if I should have posted this under Prep School Admission Chances...Thanks for any input!
