After spending months visiting colleges, taking standardized exams, filling out applications, and writing essays, you’ve been waitlisted!!! How could they? But isn’t the better question, “Why did they?”
Improving Your Chances of Admission
It is possible to improve one’s chances of admission after being deferred or waitlisted. Wilton-based AdmissionsCheckup.com is a network of former admissions officers who evaluate prospective students’ applications. They provide specific feedback on the application before it is submitted. But if a student has already submitted his or her application and received a waitlist reply, our former admissions officers can also clarify why a student was waitlisted and possibly help a student get admitted from the waitlist.
Perhaps, unknowingly, the student gave the wrong impression, left too many unanswered questions or neglected to include something important. AdmissionsCheckup.com gives you a fresh perspective, clarifying possible reasons for the student’s wait list status and giving the student concrete steps that may help him or her get admitted.
On average, AdmissionsCheckup.com’s former admissions officers have more than eight years of experience as assistant admissions directors, associate admissions directors, and directors of admissions at major universities and colleges. These include Bates, Boston University, Bowdoin, Duke, Johns Hopkins, Northeastern, Northwestern, Oberlin, Pomona, Princeton, Tufts, University of North Carolina, Williams, and many others.
