In past years, there's often been a thread to discuss this event. Is anyone here applying?

    So I'm not applying this year but I think this is relevant. I applied last year and attended and I have to say it was one of the best college visits I had! So anybody who's thinking of applying: JUST DO IT! It's free and even if you don't get in I'm pretty sure you get a fee waiver for the Swat Common App. Plus, you get practice with your essays!

    I'll be attending Swat this year and DiscoSwat is the reason why!

    I am! Just making some final edits to the essays, and I'm excited.

    So, the email invite said the deadline is 8/15 but the website says 8/22. Anyone know for sure?
  • amidupeupleamidupeuple Registered User Posts: 40 Junior Member
    So I've heard. Nobody's called and confirmed but I'd assume its been extended. Maybe for lack of applicants.
  • otispotisp Registered User Posts: 294 Junior Member
    Well, a well-timed email this morning says 8/22!
  • hsgradhsgrad Registered User Posts: 369 Member
    8/22 it is. When do notifications come out?

    I called and asked if you need to submit your transcript, which they said that you can online through their e-mail (discover@swarthmore.edu)

    Do you just title the email :[name] transcript for discover swarthmore and just scan and send in a transcript?

    I was planning to visit Swarthmore this week and only just saw Discover Swarthmore now; does anyone know when selected students will be notified?
  • nhdmaniacnhdmaniac Registered User Posts: 361 Member
    the email says by September 1

    Is this program not available for international students?
  • hsgradhsgrad Registered User Posts: 369 Member
    Neolucid: So the transcript does not need to be an official one sent from your school? Can you screen shot it from Naviance or something and send it?
    Chee95c...I THINK it is only for US students. Most flyins limit it to US because they pay for travel and it is a a relatively short time that you are at the college. But, contact the school and check maybe.

    Record number of applications, so no decisions until Monday. Poor admission staff will be working the holiday weekend.
  • drsarahnhdrsarahnh Registered User Posts: 23 New Member
    Hopefully they won't postpone the emails anymore!
  • TrueDreamerTrueDreamer Registered User Posts: 40 Junior Member
    Do anyone know what time the decisions are supposed to come out?
  • drsarahnhdrsarahnh Registered User Posts: 23 New Member
    They sent out an email a couple days ago that said the decisions would be emailed sometime by the end of today
