Williston Seniors Hear Early College News

2012_Poggenpohl_008When it comes to admission decisions, seniors at The Williston Northampton School have faced stiff competition—and have done very well, said Tim Cheney, director of College Counseling. Cheney said that the admission landscape this year continued to be extremely competitive, but that many members of the class of 2013 had begun to hear good news from their top choices.

“The last few years have seen record increases in applications at scores of colleges nationwide,” Cheney wrote in an email. “Simply put, it’s all about supply and demand—there are often too many qualified candidates vying for admission from across the globe and not enough spaces to accommodate them all.”

Even facing such daunting odds, Cheney said seniors had received an impressive 100-plus early decision or early action offers—from more than 50 colleges and universities.

“Students in the class of 2013 should be proud of their acceptances,” he wrote.
