Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, or Yale? The clock ticks down to admissions notifications for the class of 2023

Crimson students who all received acceptance letters to their dream university this year

The wait is almost over for the many thousands of students around the world awaiting US college admission notifications!

In the next few weeks, all US universities, including the Ivy Leagues, will be telling each and every one of their applicants for the Class of 2023 whether they were #Accepted or not.

Back in December many students were told if they had been accepted, deferred or rejected to their first choice universities in the early round, but now, as regular decision notification dates approach, students will finally know the answer to the question:

Where will my college home be for the next four years?

If you have ever wondered exactly how students are notified by the colleges they have applied to as to their application status, it goes something like this:

1. On the pre-released notification day for your chosen university (universities) you await an email telling you that there has been an ‘update’ to your portal.

2. Many universities release, not only the date - but the time of these releases (for example, all eight Ivy League universities will notify students at (or slightly after) 5pm on March 28 (American Eastern Standard Time).

3. Once you log in to your portal (which was set up when you submitted your application). You will see a new tab that says ‘view update’.

4. You click on the ‘view update’ tab and hold your breath until…

Every university has a different way of congratulating their admitted students: some reveal a page of glitter or streamers or balloons, others simply reveal a large CONGRATULATIONS. Still others present you with a letter which you must read until your eyes finally find the words that explain...

Of course, not every university accepts every applicant and some students are not rejected, but waitlisted until further notice.

The main thing to remember is, the university that accepts you is the one that really thinks you will have the best four years on their campus.

After recieving thier acceptance letter, students then have until May 1 to confirm acceptance to their chosen university.

To all the Crimson Education students - a huge GOOD LUCK! Here’s to another year of successful admissions. (Crimson Education tracks at a 99% admission success rate for their students with their students gaining entry to at least one of their top 8 US university choices.)
