Smith College Class of 2025 -- Regular Decision

Hey Everyone!

I hope you’re all well and keeping safe during this pandemic. I noticed there hasn’t been a sub on prospective Smithies. Hoping we could connect:)

Keep well!


Hey from a current Smithie ‘25. Good luck to everyone :slight_smile: hope to see y’all next year!


Hey! did you receive your ed decision already?

Just popping in as I do some research for my kid’s applications to say that 25 years after I graduated from Smith, the school is still a huge part of my life. I am grateful every day for the time I spent there. It is filled with wild and wise women of all stripes who go on to change the world and share a lifelong bond known as being a Smithie. Good luck, future Smithies!


now we wait until mid-late March? Smith is now top of the list for my D. I really really hope she is accepted.

Yes, the waiting…but in the meantime everything is possible.
Still, we would like all of the answers now because the stress is real.

In a week or so Smith will release some early acceptances. Last year was Feb. 20. Usually a number of the early accepts then get merit awards in March, just before all acceptances are announced. Good luck!!!


Ooh fingers crossed! Hoping we hear early!

Are they acceptances or “Likely”? Do they come snail mail?

They are acceptances and last year they came snail mail. I do not remember when portals were updated.


lolll I’m def not getting one

My daughter and a school friend each got snail mail letters today. Essentially, a “select group of applicants” were notified early. Very surprising and nice. I imagine they may send out more of these this year given concerns about yield. Good luck –– the weather has certainly delayed mail everywhere except here in NYC!

Was her portal updated? Thanks

She didn’t do or see anything – and I didn’t hear about any email notifications. So with that I’d say no.

Oh great then lol I guess I am not getting anything lol

snail mail can take a while depending on where you are. I will keep fingers crossed through Saturday and then give up hope.

where are you located if I may ask?

I live in the UK so lollll, I guess overseas they wont do snail mail, will prob get rejected lol

I got the same letter today! I live in NYC as well. It’s likely the weather is delaying the mail for lots of people, so don’t give up hope yet!
