Katherine Price, a Senior Associate with Montgomery Educational Consulting, shares her thoughts on the wait list. “While the reality is that some colleges (mostly high selective schools) will not need to go to their wait list, student should still do everything thing they can to increase their chances of being admitted,” stated Ms. Price
The first step students should do is to continue to show interest in the college. Ms. Price encourages students to write a letter or send an email highlighting how they will contribute to the college community if admitted. “Now is the time to be specific. You not only want to show the college how it will benefit by having you as a student, but you also want to illustrate how the college fits into your goals and aspirations,” said Ms. Price.
Students should also inform the college of any updates they have. Students with updated grades or who have received awards or honors in the past few months should let colleges know. Again, this will show the college that you will contribute to their community and that you have remained a strong student through the final semester of your senior year.
Students should also consider that they are more than likely going to receive a decision by June 1st. “If you have not heard back by the beginning of June, then you may want to let go and start looking forward to the other opportunities ahead of you,” stated Ms. Price.
