Dear Class of 2022 and Parents,
 
Congratulations on making it to April and on all of your accomplishments thus far; we are all very proud of you! Please report all of your admission decisions to your counselor immediately. We also ask that you email a picture of any scholarship letters you have received to [email protected]. As always, we remain available for conversations and questions.
 
If you have not heard back from a college yet, please speak to your counselor. Also, please check your Spam Folder. NOTE: If you are waiting to hear from a CUNY school, you should search your Inbox and Spam Folder for “SEEK” as you may have an email that requires you to respond. Not doing so will delay or prevent an admissions decision from the school that sent the message. 
 
The time is coming for you to decide which ONE school you will attend. The deadline to enroll at most colleges is still May 1. Carefully evaluate all of the information you’ve collected, ask questions, visit campuses if you’re able, and make the choice that is best for you. Keep in mind:
 
  • You may NOT submit an enrollment deposit (this is your commitment to attend) to more than one school. It is an unethical practice that may result in your admission offers being rescinded by the colleges involved.
  • No college should require you to commit to attending prior to May 1, the National Candidates Reply Date. Of course, Early Decision is an exception to this rule. Speak with your counselor if you have concerns or questions about your particular circumstances.
  • If you have received any financial aid offers, compare them carefully. Determine exactly what your out-of-pocket costs will be to attend each school. Ask your counselor if you need assistance. 
  • Attend in-person or virtual events for admitted students!
  • Once you have decided where to enroll, notify the colleges that you will not attend by declining their admission offer. If this is not an available option in your online portal, follow the instructions the university provides to respond to your offer.
  • If you have been offered a spot on a college's waiting list, speak with your counselor about what you need to do to remain an active, viable candidate on the list if you hope to be admitted. Be sure that you have a place to attend if you are not eventually offered admission from the waitlist. You will most likely have to pay a deposit at another school and then withdraw from that school if you get admitted off of a waitlist. Please notify your counselor immediately if you hope to pursue waitlists at any school(s) and you have not done so. 
  • If you are planning to go to Israel next year, make sure you adhere to your college's deadline to request a deferral. Some are as early as May 1.
  • Be sure to verify that the college you have enrolled (or deferred enrollment) has your personal email address on file (as opposed to your Flatbush one).
