Regular Decision Notification Dates

Seniors across the country have been patiently waiting to hear back from their Regular Decision schools. Hopefully, that patience will pay off in the next few weeks as hundreds of schools release their admissions decisions. Your list most likely contained a mix of safety, target, and reach schools, all of which had features that would make you happy to attend. Make sure to keep the highs and lows in perspective as you receive the news, and know that in the end, you will make your college experience, not the other way around.

The Risks of Senioritis

Whether or not you got into college early, you may be feeling done with school! You've put countless hours of work into getting good grades, preparing for standardized tests, and writing college essays, and you definitely deserve a break.
