Presidential Fellowship Review

At the beginning of this and last week, each staff member received a stack of Presidential Fellowship files to review. Some students also submit portfolios as part of the application.

Everyone on the freshman admissions team has a stack of files on his or her desk right now that looks like this. These brightly colored files can only mean one thing - Presidential Fellowship review is underway! When students apply to the university all their documents are scanned and we read those applications online as opposed to using actual paper files. For a variety of reasons, though, we do things differently for Presidential Fellowship, our full-tuition scholarship program. The application deadline for the Presidential Fellowship for fall 2016 was November 1....Click here to read more.

In the past, we have answered the most popular questions asked during travel season: here and here. We considered writing another “Questions from the Road” piece, but then we thought it might be better to provide advice about the types of questions you should be asking at college fairs or during campus visits.

A few of our admit packets stuffed and ready to mail.

October is always a very busy month in Admissions. We're in the throes of what we call "travel season," the 10-12 weeks we spend each fall visiting hundreds of high schools, interviewing students at coffee and sandwich shops, and representing the university at college fairs. Traveling doesn't mean life stops in the office, though; and with many students having already applied for fall 2017 we've begun reviewing applications. Stevenson has a rolling admissions process with specific deadlines for scholarship consideration. We read applications in the order they are completed and students can expect a decision within three to four weeks. We always send our first decisions the week of October 15 and we'll send a new round of decision letters every Friday until the admission cycle comes to a close. So, despite our packed agendas, application review is underway and today we sent our first offers of admission for the Class of 2021.
