Colleges are offering more decisions than yes or no

Students expect an acceptance or rejection letter from their application for college admission. But colleges now offer more variations on their response to student requests for admission such as:

  • you are not being admitted at this time but we are offering you a place on our wait list
  • you have been admitted for the January term, instead of the fall
  • we are offering you admission to our campus in Europe
  • you have been admitted but you are not admitted for the major you declared
  • we are offering you a contract for guaranteed admission next year if you attend another college or branch of our college for one year and accomplish a specific gpa and number of credits

Students with whom I have worked have not accepted these alternate offers. Instead they have looked at the other offers they have and made a selection. The reason they cite for moving on is that they want certainty about where they are going and they want to go to a college where they are wanted. Smart choice!
