Last Friday’s ED deadline has come and gone. Now that you’ve handed in your application and (hopefully!) taken a deep breath, what’s next?
Well, Thanksgiving is a few weeks away and the New Year is right around the corner. But for us (and probably most of you reading this post right now), the holidays happen to coincide with another wonderful time of the year: Early Decision season. Here are some other important dates to keep in mind if you applied to Hopkins through our Early Decision plan:
- Be on the look-out for an e-mail from us in late-November with instructions for how to log-in to the Decision Release website.
- Decisions will be released on December 13, 2013.
Here in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, our admissions counselors have already started reading through the many applications on file. We always enjoy learning more about our ED applicants and their unique experiences, passions, and voices.
Take it from admissions counselor Shannon Miller, who thinks that the best part of reading applications has got to be the essay. “This is the part of the application where I feel like I REALLY get to know the student who I have been reading about in all of the other pieces. It is where I get to hear his/her voice and imagine him/her on our campus. I know the student is a fit for us when after reading the essay I can see them in one of our classrooms, imagine them as a great roommate, or picture them giving back to our community,” says Shannon.
In the meantime, if you have any updated grades or test scores, send them to us by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget to include your name, high school, and Common Application or Universal Application ID number.
Keep checking back for more updates as the Decision Release date gets closer.
