May is always a bittersweet time for us. The May 1st confirmation deadline starts out the month with seniors confirming the school they'll attend and we know they're headed off to great adventures. Our seniors navigated amazing offers, waitlists, and petitions with grace and they will all attend excellent schools this fall. Many will attend their first-choice schools. To say we are proud of them is an understatement! This year was more difficult than ever with admissions being more obscure with COVID. Navigating the new test-optional/test-blind landscape in addition to all the cancelled testing was uncertain, and the lack of in-person visits made confirming even more challenging. Learning about school culture and feel is difficult to do online, but thankfully our seniors feel solid in their decisions. We wish them the very best and are so thankful we got the privilege of working with them and their families.
This May Anu went to California and visited several schools as they slowly start to re-open their campuses. University of Redlands was a hidden gem with strong programs in Spatial Studies, and Communication Sciences & Disorders. We both also participated in several webinars, including Johns Hopkins, Duke, Harvard, U Penn, Georgetown and Harvard.
