    DS received a likely letter yesterday, which included a "let's do lunch" coupon and a Whitman self adhering card holder for his cell phone. He has unweighted gpa of 3.89 and 1500 on new SAT. He has not visited campus yet, but met with the admission counselor when she visited his high school.

    Congrats to all who got accepted. Im happy for you. And you have reason to celebrate as Whitman College is an excellent school.

    My daughter was waitlisted. However, she has had 6 college acceptances already. Nevertheless, she's still a little sad because Whitman was her first choice.

    The other thing I want to mention is, that Whitman sent her a nylon/drawstring bag back in February. It kept her hopes up. I wish the college would have never done that. Especially, if they were not sure she'd get in. It seems wrong.

    For those kids applying to Whitman in the future. Know that this nylon bag does not mean you'll get an acceptance letter.
