Lafayette College Class of 2016

<p>Hey, I'm from Cleveland, Ohio and I just got my ED acceptance letter to Lafayette! I made this thread just so people can discuss their opinions, worries, etc about next year, and early on we can get to know other people who might be our classmates soon. Feel free to join in whether or not you know you are attending Lafayette next year. Also, if you already go to Lafayette, any advice to new coming freshman?</p>

<p>Hi, @ladyitalkalot could you post ur stats??? I applied ED to Lafayette but yet to receive my decision...a couple of days says the admissions office!! a bit paranoid becoz some great application from NEpal were deferred!! and my SAT scores are lower than theirs!!</p>

<p>sure, no problem. I had a 2030 composite score for SAT, and about a 3.7 weighted GPA. When I got my acceptance letter they also included a letter addressed to me about how they really liked my essay about horseback riding. I also am an African-American girl, so that probably helped a lot with my chances, because schools are always looking to keep their numbers diversified. I don't have tons of extra-curricular activities, I only ride horses and play field hockey. Hope this helps!</p>

Congratulations! Welcome to Lafayette!!</p>


<p>Dude, tbh, your stats and domestic students stats will be different. There's no way to measure our GPA (if you're +2/I Sc). Also, don't worry much if your decision is slightly late. Wait a while and then email admissions if you dont get your decision in a week or so.
chill broda.</p>

<p>Good luck.</p>

<p>@sixstringsrocker.... i heard this time around....a guy from RBS was deferred..he had 2200+ SAT and great A Level grades....also he was willing to pay about 8000$ per year........ i have good a level grades...but only 2130 on SAT and can pay about 1000$ per year..... I had also emailed admissions office...they said my app was not processed yet....but the next round of decisions was in a couple of days..welll the couple of days have passed...but still no decision..</p>

<p>I think I will be deferred too. What do you say?</p>

<p>dude, there's nothing much I can say. I don't know what happens inside admissions but you should know, SAT isn't everything. You could find a hundred 2250 scorers but if they're all the same, then its no use. Don't worry about scores. Just hang in there.</p>

<p>Has any international student received ED notification yet?</p>

<p>I received both email(Dec 15) and package(Dec 21).</p>

<p>Congratulations smile 723. Which country are you from?</p>

<p>I am from Japan, but I go to school in the United States. Where are you from?</p>

<p>I'm from Vietnam. Nice to talk to you. Merry Christmas buddy!</p>
