I was just accepted in to the Gateway program last night and it has been a dream of mine to be a student at Notre Dame. Although I would technically have to wait a year to be a full student, I am really excited about this opportunity. I also have a sibling at ND which I think helps the situation. That being said, I am still a little unsure about the program in terms of integration at ND. I really wish I could go to an information session about this but due to COVID that is not possible. Was anyone accepted too? What are the pros or cons? Any guidance would be really helpful.

Have a lot of friends who did the gateway program. It can be a tough year, but you make great friends within the program and then get to go to ND. None of them regretted it, and seem to be really happy.
