Two-thirds of Seniors Apply to 50 Unique Colleges and Universities Early

Monday, November 2, 2020

The Class of 2021 has completed their first round of college applications. 64 applications have been completed to meet the November 1 early application deadlines. Two-thirds of the 73 members of the Class of 2021 have chosen to submit under early application programs. By November 15 early application deadlines, students in the Class of 2021 will have applied to 50 unique colleges and universities. We are proud of Waterford seniors’ work on their college essays and applications this fall. We are grateful for the efforts that go into their teacher recommendations by Upper School faculty, and pause to reflect on the impact their teachers over the years have had in students’ growth and preparation to reach this point.

Please see a list of colleges where students have applied Early Action, Early Decision, or Priority by November 15. Our students' diverse range of interests and sought experiences can be seen by this incredible list of colleges and universities.
