A Few Things To Do Now That Admissions Is Closing

So what should applicants do and not do? We caught up briefly with Jenna King, admissions director at Riverdale Country School and asked her to share some of her insight…

What should parents/applicants be focusing on now?

  • research follow up questions now to prepare for offers i.e., transportation, after-school programs
  • don’t get too focused on a particular school, keep options open
  • be ready to respond to questions about affordability and deposit
  • offers can create a frenzy but take time to read contracts
  • keep things in perspective, stay positive

First choice/top choice letters?

  • depends on schools-some want, some don’t be careful.

What does the work schedule of the admission office look like now?

  • days, nights and weekends!
  • so try not to call the office to find out if items are missing from your file
  • online application platforms indicate what is still outstanding
  • as well, many schools will call if something is missing

Thanks, Jenna! We appreciate all of the hard work our admission teams put into building community.
