We are coming down the homestretch of the 2020 admissions cycle. This evening the Ivy League schools will release their admission decisions. I thought it would be useful to post a quote that I saw from a lion in the school counseling world, to offer context and comfort in the event that you do not get the answer that you were hoping for. This school counselor said that an admissions representative from an Ivy League school gave a presentation to parents at his high school. This person told the parents, “The process is completely subjective and is designed to serve the colleges”. If you get the answer that you were hoping for this evening, congratulations! And if you did not, remember, the selection process is more about the school than the applicant. I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and finding ways to enjoy social isolation!
