IvyWise Live: What to Do If You Get Put On The Waitlist
So you were waitlisted – now what? Being placed on your dream school’s waitlist can be very confusing and disappointing after months of awaiting college decisions, but there’s a lot to consider in the days and weeks leading up to National College Decision Day on May 3. Join IvyWise college admissions counselors Carolyn and Christine as they share insights on waitlist’s purpose and how it works, your chances of getting off the waitlist, and, most importantly, the next steps you need to take over the coming weeks. There will be a live Q&A session following their presentation, allowing attendees to have their questions about both their personal waitlist situation and how to navigate their other college offers answered directly by IvyWise experts.
