Anonymous asked: Hi! I was recently wait listed at smith college (my dream school for 3 years) and don't really know what my next move should be. I got an additional teacher recommendation and am thinking about writing to the admissions office voicing exactly why I'm a good fit for smith. Is there anything else I should/can do? Also-- I will be needing financial aid, are wait listed students still granted financial aid or has it been mostly given to previously accepted students? Thank you!
Hi, thank you for you question : )
Smith does accept students from the wait list! In addition, according to Smith website, “Smith meets the full documented need, as determined by college policy, of all admitted students who apply for aid by the published deadlines.” Thus, I guess no matter you are accepted under which round, if you applied for financial aid and are admitted, you can receive certain amount of financial aid. For more accurate information and statistic, I would recommend you to contact admission office directly : )
I am accepted by Smith in Early Decision round, so I don’t have personal experience about wait list strategy. I would say sending in additional materials and showing your passion for Smith could be a good idea. Feel free to message me if you have other questions. Good luck !!
Anonymous asked: Hi Gigi, am not too familiar with the American Colleges admission and am pretty anxious about my daughter's admission. Question: If the applicant is successful , will the College send a letter/mail instead of stating status of success on the website.
Hi, thank you for your question :) I would say it depends.
For Smith College, the admission result is available now. Your daughter should have received an email from Smith Admission Office and she could check the result on the website. In addition, Smith will send a letter to students as well :)
