Private School Applications Increased in 2021-2022 Admissions Season

Private_School_Applications_Increases_Dr_Paul_Lowe

Many private day schools as well as boarding schools are reporting an increase in the number of applications.  Our firm is also experiencing an increase in inquiries regarding our private school and boarding school admissions advisory services.  In a recent conference, Rhode Island Education Commissioner Angélica Infante-Green indicated that approximately 80 percent of Rhode Island students in grades three through eight were not proficient in math and only a third were reading at grade level the during pandemic-interrupted 2020-2021 school year, according to standardized test scores released Thursday by the state.  It was reported that Infante-Green said Rhode Island joins most states around the country – including Massachusetts and Connecticut – in seeing proficiency rates fall during the pandemic.

Private schools have seen a flurry of new interest from families who view private schools as being better equipped to provide robust instruction, given their financial resources, space and nimbleness in adapting.  As a result of this interest, the competition for coveted spots have increased.

Earlier this year, many students who applied to top boarding schools, including Exeter, Andover, St. Paul’s and Choate were place on waitlists and were eventually notified that could not gain entrance this past fall. In a letter to families, one boarding school stated in April, 2021: “At this time, it is clear that we will be unable to admit students from our waiting list in the near future as we anticipate being overenrolled….followed by another note in August 2021: “…we remain fully enrolled and as such, will be unable to offer admission to any students from our waiting list. I am sorry not to have better news for you and on behalf of all of my colleagues here in the admission office”.

Top Boarding Schools – It’s Getting More Competitive to Be Accepted!

Boarding_School_Waitlisted_Rejected_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor_Independent_Educational_Consultant

It’s April and parents continue to frantically call our offices or email us regarding waitlists!  The common message: My child was waitlisted at a particular top boarding school or several boarding schools.  They’re usually referring to one or all of the Ten Schools.  Many decide to wait patiently, try to see what they can do on their own and then perhaps reapply next year to the 10th grade on their own.

Waitlisted_Top_Boarding_Schools_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor_Independent_Educational_Consultant

Here is the problem with this approach.  The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected boarding school admissions. More parents are interested in the boarding school dynamic and aware of the superior education at top boarding schools. A recently published article in the New York Times: “The Boarding-School Boom” has confirmed what we have been advising our clients who have been accepted to top boarding schools…..there is now hyper-competition in boarding school admissions.

Several schools have reported to us, this year, that they had a record number of applicants and they were able to admit a mere 10% of all applicants (as opposed to 14-18% in past years).  What does this mean?  Getting off the waitlist will be difficult!  More students will remain on the waitlist and will inevitably be perpetually waitlisted (effectively, rejected).  For many of the competitive schools, April 10th is the date admitted students are asked to notify the Admission Office of their enrollment decision.  After this date, many parents know if their children will be starting public school in the fall and will have to decide if their children will be reapplying next year for the 10th grade.  The reapplication to boarding schools (especially ones where students were waitlisted or rejected) can be tricky and will involve different admissions strategies.

Successful boarding school admissions requires expertise and experience to understand how to manage risks, navigate pitfalls, design the right admissions strategies, and most importantly understand the admissions policies and professionals who are making admissions decisions – in other words an admissions expert!

It’s A New Admissions Year – 2021

Happy New Year! Welcome to Dr. Paul Lowe Admissions Expert Blog – 2021

Happy-new-year_2021_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Expert_Advisor_Independent_Educational_Consultant

The past year has been full of uncertainty. As a consequence of the myriad of transitions, changes, adjustments and adaptations, now there’s a whole new admissions world. Education has moved from in-person to online learning and there has been an increase in the number of applications to top private day and boarding schools, Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities and BS/MD programs! The College Board recently announced that it is eliminating the SAT subject tests and optional essay-writing section!

The one constant we have observed last year and the beginning of this year, is that parents want the best education for their children whether it’s K-12, college or graduate school.

As families navigate through these extraordinary and unparalleled admissions times, having an expert who can help make objective decisions is invaluable. As experts, we understand the fluctuating landscape and degrees of complexity in the current admissions scenarios so that students can avoid mistakes, stay focused and attain successful admissions decisions. Our knowledge-intelligence that results in our admissions success involves our ability to plan, to know how to adjust and when to change effectively.

Following last year’s admissions season, we heard from many parents and school counselors whose students applied ED to the Ivies and were rejected, yet we have clients who were accepted ED to Harvard, Yale, Brown, UPenn, Columbia and Cornell. And our Brown PLME acceptance rate was just amazing!  Brown PLME: Early Decision Results

Year after year, parents and fellow consultants ask us, what’s your secret? How do you provide stellar admissions results? It’s actually quite simple and conspicuously obvious….We are DIFFERENT!

Dr. Lowe and his team collectively, through their insight, foresight, proprietary- knowledge, wisdom and confidence, choose the best admissions strategies to be applied prudently for the best decision results – That’s our secret!

This year, many parents will be extremely happy because they will use our SECRET!

Each year, admissions policies and strategies change, so stay tuned for my upcoming, informative, helpful and thought-provoking admissions blogs!
