Curious if any other students are interested in St. Joseph’s for class of 2026? My son was admitted with 28K in merit and automatic honors college which was nice.


My daughter is considering it - she also got $28,000 per year! It’s in her top 3. Waiting to hear from Villanova. UD is her other top choice.

Looking more likely for Saint Joe’s… Daughter wait-listed at Nova… Accepted to Fordham too but I think less likely due to distance.

Will she be doing the Honors program? What do you know about St. Joe’s? We are going next weekend for a quick 24 hours for the admitted students’ day.

We live right down the street from St. Joe’s lol (in Bala Cynwyd), so we are biased and love the area. Suburban Square is a popular shopping/dining/browsing stop if you need somewhere to go.

I don’t think she is interested in the Honors program even though she is an amazing student (4.73 W), she also really values her down-time and likes to spend time doing other things (dancing, working, etc).

We can’t make either admitted student day (dance competitions), but we already kind of know a lot about the school/area. :wink:

We are going to visit Fordham next month for one of the preview Saturdays - she’ll decide after that, so last minute!

Enjoy your day!


She just received the Honors Program email today. She is thinking about it.
