Freshman Waitlist And Appeal Deadlines

Freshman Waitlist and Appeal Deadlines

I realize only now that I only put transfer waitlist and appeal deadlines up a while back, but neglected to update with the freshman dates.

Since I work with so many freshman applicants nowadays, below are the dates and requirements for appeals and waitlists by campus.

–> All appeal letters are due April 15.
–> Waitlist letters have varying deadlines, usually April 15.

  As usual, I work with both freshmen and transfers with waitlists and appeals. In a nutshell, it goes like this:

Appeal letter:  $160

Waitlist letter:  $135

Both include brainstorming with edits through final draft.

Special: Any appeal or waitlist letter after the first full-priced letter is $50 per letter.  If you need both an appeal letter and a waitlist letter, the full-price will always be the appeal letter, with $50 for multiples of either type after that.

If you wish more information, please reach out HERE.  I have an excellent track record and ay any letter submitted will be the strongest it can be, so you can feel confident you tried your best. I also am honest with you if I don’t think it’s a viable option.
