I’m making this thread for ED 2 applicants to Wellesley!!!
where’s everyone from?
Thanks for starting this just decided to apply for ED2
thanks for making this! ive been waiting for this thread
So nervous but excited!
Just out of curiosity, why did you guys ED2 instead of ED1? ED1 rejection? First semester grades?
I am an international student who got deferred by Brown…Just a little question for the United States high school students: is Brown much tougher to get into than Wellesley? Thanks!
Brown’s acceptance rate is 9%, Wellesley’s is around 30.
I applied ED 1 to Barnard and got rejected. However, I think Wellesley will be a better fit for me.
Same, I got rejected from Barnard ED1 also. Still not sure if I should apply ED2 to Wellesley… My GPA is on the lower end, and I don’t honestly think I have a much better chance with Wellesley.
I asked for an interview but I haven’t received a response yet. Has anyone here received one?
When did you request your interview? I think the response was fairly fast and it was easy to set up! If you have any questions about the interview let me know! I already completed mine in November and am doing Early Evaluation.
Hey guys. So I am an international student who was accepted to Wellesley ED1. Feel free to ask me any questions!
Actually Wellesley’s class of 2021 was closer to 20% rather than the stated (and usual) 30%.
Did you have an interview too? I live in a place with poor network connection and last time I had my interview with my ed1 college but it didn’t go well because of internet connection problem. So I thought it better not to schedule my interview with wellesley admin. But does interview form an integral part in application process?
turtle26 which country are you from?
- First year U.S. applicants: An interview is strongly recommended but not required and the lack of an interview will not adversely impact your application
- First year International applicants: A limited number of interviews are offered; interviews are not required and the lack of an interview will not adversely impact your application
- Davis Scholar, postbaccalaureate candidates, and accelerating candidates: An interview is required
