The Nov. 1 deadline has passed with many seniors submitting Early Decision and Early Action applications to college. While the hard part of submitting applications is over for some, the waiting period has just begun. Seniors frantically check their FirstClass accounts, waiting for the “Congratulations” email from the school of their dreams. But according to Mr. Day, your status and worth is not wrapped up in these decisions.

In this stressful time of year it is important to keep this in mind: “If we’ve done our job, then you’ll be entering college as confident and prepared students,” said Dean of Students Mr. Whyte. “What you do while you’re there will be much more important than where you go, so you need to decide on a place that’s a good fit for you and not worry about what other people think of that school.”
