Been Offered

Now that you have your offer, you need to finalize your decision about where to enroll, especially if you have more than one admissions offer. Many schools will host admitted student visitation sessions prior to May 1. With the exception of early decision or early action deadlines, May 1 is widely accepted as the Candidate’s Reply Date or Date of Acceptance in the U.S.

Many schools will host admitted student programs around the time most high schools are on spring break. Be sure to keep an eye out for information about your next visit opportunity through these channels:

  • Incoming email from the schools who made an offer admission.
  • The college web site — look for a section for admitted students.
  • USPS mail — invitations may be mailed to your home announcing spring visit programs.

If you have not yet met with professors or students from your desired major, now would be a good time to do so. If you have any questions about how to arrange this, contact the college admissions office to find out who to talk with to schedule an appointment.
