2021 Prep School Decisions Thread [DECISIONS ONLY]

Thought I would make one for 2021 if it doesn’t exist yet:

Please use this survey to share decisions for 2021:

**Note: Please click the linked form above to share decision results! Any stats and/or commentary (congratulations, commiseration, etc.) shall only be spoken about on other threads. (Namely the Official 2021 Freakout Thread)

If you want to post results here too, please be sure to read the ENTIRE post and follow the directions that were provided here EXACTLY.

**Note: this thread is FOR RESULTS ONLY! Any stats and/or commentary (congratulations, commiseration, etc.) shall only be spoken about on other threads. (Namely the Official 2021 Freakout Thread)

FORMAT:
Username (as it appears below/next to 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, COPY 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 the “peak” hours of M9 and M10. In the past, several people have been known to clean up the list after/before normal business hours to maintain order.

Schools should be referred to by one-word names (Ex: Andover, as opposed to Phillips Academy Andover), but if you need to clarify, make it short and sweet (Ex: St. Andrew’s, RI or St. Andrew’s, DE). You are permitted to shorten names (Ex. L’ville, as opposed to Lawrenceville).

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

FIRST POST:
KidWithDreams: ACCEPTED: Westover, Thacher; WAITLISTED: Cate; REJECTED: Episcopal, Miss Porter’s

SECOND POST:
KidWithDreams: ACCEPTED: Westover, Thacher; WAITLISTED: Cate; REJECTED: Episcopal, Miss Porter’s

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

THIRD POST:
KidWithDreams: ACCEPTED: Westover, Thacher; WAITLISTED: Cate; REJECTED: Episcopal, Miss Porter’s

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

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

…and so on

(See, you will need to copy and paste results from others into an ALPHABETICAL LIST)

Would it be possible to use something like this to gather stats this year?

With the data in a more structured format, we could create some cool graphs and pull some stats out that would otherwise be very difficult. Anyway, just an idea! Would be happy to support creating the graphs and having them update in real-time on CC.

Responses could be put into something like this:

Don’t see why not.

Good catch. Yes NMH as well @CCadminMike

Got 'em! I’ll be back later tonight to add any schools that folks report are missing. I’ll also wait until some fill out the survey to add some graphs to this thread.

Good luck everyone!

Can we still post results with our names though? It would be interesting to see where everyone got in with the names, or would that be the Stats/ECS thread?

I’ll see if there’s an easy way to share individual results so people don’t have to do it twice…

@CCadminMike

Totally agree that seeing the names with the decisions is much more useful to future applicants. It’s far more helpful to see the distribution of results for each individual than for the group. The survey loses that. Please don’t have the survey replace the old format - that’s not an upgrade! (Even if it’s cool looking. )

I agree. Two separate threads please. Original format back at the top of this one to match the prior years. @CCadminMike @skieurope
