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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call into the office at 401-254-3500. My email is email@example.com 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!
Just this past week I returned from a month of travels in Asia, a month spent meeting students and their families that brought me to some truly amazing places and in contact with some truly amazing people. Here are a few of the places and sights that I was able to see and of course I had to take Swoop the Hawk, our mascot with me as well! In Kolkata, India I was able to visit the home and then the orphanage where Mother Teresa spent her life before traveling to the outskirts of the city to see rural fishing villages. In New Delhi, India I was able to take to the streets to explore the shops and restaurants. In Beijing, China a group of daring counselors and myself woke up at 4:30 in the morning to make it to the Great Wall before our afternoon college fair and gazing over the amazing structure as it rolled on in the hills in both directions was worth every second. In Hong Kong the lights at night both from the top of Victoria’s Peak and from the middle of the harbor were truly stunning. Not to mention the whirlwind experience of being interviewed on a television network in Vietnam, speaking with fellow counselors about how to choose a university and how to apply. And that is just a few of the places and images from my travels that will stay with me now that I am home.Read More
Episode III: “All’s Fair…”
We last saw our Hero, soaring into the “City of Big Shoulders.”
From high above the city, Swoop, surveys the scene…
Until… He spots it… The National Hispanic College Fairs and of course, the snazzy blue RWU bags…
Episode II: Swoop Takes the Windy City!
Posing as mild-mannered RWU undergrad, Rodney, our hero readies himself for the fast approaching migration season.
It is during this time, high school juniors travel far and wide, searching for a place to call home… away from home… in about a year and a half from now… give or take a few-
With his super-sonic, X-ray hearing, Rodney hears calls of distress…
Just thought I’d send a happy hello your way from the road! I’ve been in Long Island and Connecticut for the past 6 weeks and will be spending the next 2 weeks time mainly traveling Connecticut so keep your eye out for me. As travel winds down I’m thrilled to say I’ve met some great students and can’t wait to see how next year’s fall class will shape up to be a great addition to campus!
For those of you seniors out there that I’ve met or have been looking into applying to RWU, keep in mind that the Early Action application deadline is fast approaching!!! If you submit your application to our office by November 1st, you will hear back from us with your admission decision by the middle of January. Don’t forget, this non-binding application is not reviewed any differently than regular decision applications BUT you will have the major benefit of hearing back by the middle of January rather than the middle of March (this is when regular decision applicants will hear back from us).
If you are going to apply, be sure you have submitted all of the required materials so that we can begin to review your application. You can feel free to call our office at 401-254-3500 at any time for an application status check or help with questions regarding applying or admission into the University.
