    DS accepted! He’s gotten into all his matches, and a bit surprised with acceptances to Colgate and Wesleyan with a 31 ACT given the daunting numbers. He’s a well-rounded student with some decent EC’s (mostly sports), and I think he had a nice essay and must’ve received some strong teacher recommendations.

    He’s interested in history at this point, and will have some tough decisions.

    Congrats to those accepted, and best of luck to everyone in your search—the right school is there for everyone.

    @iniem1 Good luck to you as well! I also applied to the Hamilton Prize. I think I read somewhere the winner isn't notified until mid May. I hope that isn't right, because it's after decision day... (also, I realized I got so excited I misspelled it's. I promise I know the difference lol)

    DS was admitted. He also got into Williams and Amherst & 4 other liberal arts colleges + one OOS State school. Waiting for one Ivy tomorrow. A bit worried about financial aid, but otherwise very happy.

    DD rejected. Accepted to Williams, Middlebury, Haverford, Colby, Kenyon, Oberlin, and Grinnell. Just goes to show you what a crapshoot college admissions can be. She never thought that she would get into Williams!

    Have a feeling that this year the Wes acceptance rate is muuuch lower than previous years as the school has become more popular and on the radar of more and more kids. Yes a crap shoot indeed my dd got into Wes and Midd but not Williams. Also each school is looking for a specific type of student. Williams seems to like more standard academic sporty kids. Whereas the motto at Wes is "keep Wes wierd." Wes cares a lot about the ECs and recommends an interview. Williams goes more off of test scores and grades. Not that Wes doesn't care about grades too but the fact that they are test optional says a lot. They also track who visits, so demonstrated interest I think also counts for something.
