Well, it’s been quite a week of mixed emotions. Mid-March is the witching hour of first wave admission decisions for US boarding schools, and for leading day schools in major cities.
Along with my client families, I have been on tenterhooks awaiting school decisions. After years of chairing admission committees, and distributing the results, it is humbling now experiencing the nervousness felt on the other side of the equation. The loss of control over the process is tempered by knowing you have done everything you can do as a consultant to help students succeed. That is what it is all about.
In mid-March I am delighted to have helped students gain the following acceptances:
Connecticut: Ethel Walker School
Massachusetts: Berkshire School
Miss Hall’s School
California: Harker School, San Jose
Stratford School, Palo Alto
Canada: Two applicants to Canadian boarding schools on rolling admissions are awaiting decisions.
Now, on to the next season – which begins today! Many students may have been disappointed with the choices they have been left with. Other families are just beginning to look for next September as they have realized they want a positive change for their children.
So, research and choices have to be made in an encapsulated time. IECA consultants are ready to help. Feel free to call us.
