Town & Country’s – This Year’s College Admissions Horror Show – Dr. Paul Lowe’s Comment

Town & Country's - This Year's College Admissions Horror Show - Dr. Paul Lowe Comment

The article in Town & Country: “This Year’s College Admissions Horror Show” by Nicole Laporte discusses rejections and this year’s college admissions cycle.

Here are some statements in article:

  • “Certain private schools that used to have incredible admissions results have just been obliterated.”
  • “Classmates who’d also applied for early decision to the school were flat-out rejected.”
  • “For that [college admissions decisions] to be a bloodbath is not a good sign.”
  • “Although the main derby of admissions, “regular” decision, was still weeks away—those results started coming out in late March—the disheartening verdicts of the early rounds for many families this past season felt like a harbinger of what was to come, as well as confirmation of just how much more angst-ridden the reality of getting into college has become.”
  • “….parents suddenly feel a bit, well, helpless, unable to control something that was, if not controllable, then at least easier to game.”

But even under these conditions, our firm had AMAZING acceptances!  In fact, several of our clients were accepted to multiple Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities and 97% acceptance into BS/MD programs.

How did we do it?

College Application Decision: Rejected? Now What?

Admissions_Rejected_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Independent_Educational_Consultant

It’s decision season! We are sure that you have seen the videos of seniors (with their parents) screaming and shouting when they have been accepted into their first-choice colleges.

But for every celebratory online posting, there are thousands of disappointed students (and parents) who are rejected from the same schools.  You should not assume that you will be admitted to the Ivies and highly selective colleges just by being a great student with top grades. In the increasingly competitive admissions environment, you need to have a competitive edge.

Getting into Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities and BS/MD programs is fiercely competitive.  For 2022, rejection rates for the Ivies demonstrate this:

  • Harvard: 96.91%
  • Yale: 95.54%
  • Columbia: 96.3%
  • Dartmouth: 93.76%
  • Brown: 95.5%
  • UPenn: 95.6%
  • Princeton: 96%
  • Cornell: 92%

So, what do you do if you are a top student in your high school class and were rejected from your top choice schools that you really wanted to attend?  It’s not all over!  You should start to think about reapplying for entrance in your sophomore year…NOW!  There is still an opportunity to gain acceptance as a reapplicant.  College Application Rejected | Transfer to Ivy Leagues | College Transfer Admissions Advisors.

First and foremost, you should continue to maintain your grades because your target (reapplication) schools will be reviewing your entire high school transcript. You should also begin to develop a new summer narrative and plan your freshman year (as a transfer student). You have to develop an improved student profile and narrative as a freshman. Remember, as a reapplicant you will not have the guidance of a school counselor (public school) or college counselor (private school) during this type of admissions process. YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN!.

We are experienced in working with students from their high school senior year through April of the college year. Last year, we worked with students who were rejected from Ivy League and highly selective college and universities and upon reapplication were accepted.  It’s called our SECOND CHANCE strategy!
