After my recent blogs regarding the waitlist and how to choose a college to commit to, today I will be talking about the Letter of Continued Interest (LOCI). You may feel discouraged about waitlist offers because you have to wait even longer to find out whether you are accepted to a college, but the silver lining of the waitlist is that the college admissions team sees something special within you.
Congratulations! March is coming to a close, which means you will be hearing back from all of the colleges that you have applied to. The national deadline to commit to a college is May 1st, so you have until then to choose which college you want to attend. This blog will give you some factors to consider when making your final college decision and some factors that you should not consider when making this life-changing decision.
When it comes to the Common Application, most essay prompts are asking rather similar questions. College Admissions Officers want to know what your identity is made up of: what your background is, what makes you tick (what your passions are), how you engage with those around you and apply yourself within your community, and how you respond to failure.
It’s March, which means that college decisions are starting to be released! You will be hearing back from colleges and their decisions on whether you were accepted, waitlisted, or sadly, rejected. Today, I am going to talk about getting waitlisted at colleges as I have experience being waitlisted to a few colleges when I was applying to schools.
