The Ending of Fall Travel Season and Application Deadlines are fast approaching!!

It’s hard to believe that the ending of our Fall travel season is fast approaching. I have had the pleasure of visiting schools in Texas as well as the Boston and Cape area this season.

Just a few weeks ago we had our October Open House! If you were unable to attend our October Open House don’t sweat it because we have one coming up on Sunday, November 3rd from 1:00pm-5:00pm. During our Open House you will have an opportunity to meet with our dedicated faculty, admissions and financial aid counselors, coaches from our 20 varsity sports, clubs and organizations, current students, and even tour our beautiful Bristol campus.

Friday, November 1st is our first of two early action application deadlines. If you will not be able to make our Early Action 1 deadline by Friday; please make sure to apply by Friday, November 15th for our Early Action 2 deadline.

I am excited about leaving the road to start reading applications from students I have had the opportunity to meet while on the road. If you have any questions about our application deadlines or requirements please feel free to contact our Undergraduate Admissions office at 800-458-7144 or email us at admit@rwu.edu.

They will be studying in Ireland, Spain, Australia, and Scotland etc.

So….at this time….The Admission staff wishes to extend to you and your families a wonderful holiday season. Stay safe and enjoy your time off from work and school. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013

Early Action One or Two???

Early Action One or Two???

Hi everyone!

I am writing to you from the lovely area of Fairfield County, CT where I have been visiting high schools all week. This is one of my absolute favorite places to visit – the students are super nice, the guidance counselors are welcoming and there are about a million Panera’s (much love to Panera Bread for their Asian Chicken Sesame Salad which keeps me from going hungry!)

Anyway, I wanted to let you know the difference between our two Early Action application deadlines. I’ve been getting alot of questions regarding why would we have deadlines two weeks apart. Here’s the situation – if you can apply for Early Action One (by 11/1) we will send your decision by December 15. Alternatively, you can apply for Early Action Two (by 11/15) and we will send your decision by January 15. Now I’ve been working in Admissions at RWU for 5 years and I can promise you that as soon as you hit send on the Common App you are going to want to know your decision. Knowing around December 15 gives you and your family more time to think it over as deposits aren’t due til May 1. Also, it is not binding to apply early action meaning you do not need to commit to RWU.

If you have any questions at all, big or small, we are here for you. Most of us counselors are hitting the road hard visiting high schools around the world but you can email us at admit@rwu.edu or call into the office at 401-254-3500. My email is jwinthrop-oney@rwu.edu if you want to ask me something – I love to help!

Best of luck with your college application process!!! Remember by this time next year you will be happily settled into your new home :) We hope it’s RWU!
