    My son got his acceptance letter today. We live about 45 minutes away, but we have really late mail delivery. Apparently this was the most competitive year in the college's history. Good luck to everyone still waiting.

    My son received his acceptance today. We live in Ithaca, NY. They claim there were 10,000 applicants for 995 spots. They do not say how many offers they made to seek to fill those spots. Probably between 4,000 and 5,000.

    @Dadtoson do u think they would make that many offers..I wonder what the percentage is.
  • feismom17feismom17 Registered User Posts: 23 New Member
    I did a quick read on their admit stats GC- last year they had 8000+ applicants, accepted half and put another 1400 on wait list- they only yield a class of just under 1000- they make it seem very competitive (which it is) but they are a safety school for many so they don't yield the majority of the students who they accept. BTW-even if you don't get in as a first sem freshman - it is a snap to get in as a transfer- with decent grades from another college- I am a guid counselor I saw a former student(dumb as a rock) transfer there after a year or so at a comm college- this student could not pass the math regents exam (the first one!) and was there going to school.

    For once our mail came early (it's usually late afternoon) today and nothing. End of alphabet. NYC area.
  • GCmom415GCmom415 Registered User Posts: 720 Member
    Oh no @mosama prob Monday then. I dont get the mail until late. I wont be back home until about 3PM..Unless my daughter raids the mailbox. Its funny to think of Geneseo as a safety. For many Im sure it is.
