Does anyone know of ANY schools that are still accepting applications? I'd prefer to go somewhere in California, Florida, or New York, but feel free to suggest ANY schools that you think would accept me.

well-crafted essay about living in different countries.

Thanks so much.

I checked MorganTruce's list. Not included is the University of Oklahoma = June 1. I certainly think you fit within their criteria. Good luck!

Two of the strongest schools on the MT list are Beloit College, LAC with excellent social sciences (anthropology and psychology in particular) and very good international programs and University of Pittsburgh (solid business school; very good English department; other good deparments too).

after the main acceptances go out, the Nat'l Assoc. of College Admissions Counselors will maintain a contunually updated list of the colleges which are still accepting applications (this may be the source of MT's list last year). Their website is:

Also, go look in the archives for a thread started Apr.16, 2003 by "nocollege" (I think in the parents'forum).

You could also look into enrolling at a school starting next spring's semester; if you're still undecided this late in the process, that may be a better option to getting forced into some college you end up hating. Your stats look nice enough that you would have many options available otherwise; don't let time be the only deciding factor.

The deadline for applying to Pomona College was Jan. 2nd. Perhaps you mean Cal Poly Pomona?

The University of Redlands in Calif. is still accepting applications - they do rolling admissions. Small LAC outside of Los Angeles.

Others in Calif. that may still be taking applications:
Azuza Pacific, Alliant International, California Lutheran, Concordia University, Loyola Marymount.

A few California State schools are still taking applications - you can find out which ones are at http://www.csumentor.edu/filing_status/
and information about the schools in the system at www.calstate.edu

Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL usually has rolling admissions, but I'm not sure how late they accept. Also, check out Flager College in St. Augustine, FL. Others in FL would include Rollins College and Stetson College; I know some students who just applied to both last week, but they may have just hit a deadline.

Your stats will place you well above the average student at these schools, however, and that is something to consider if you desire a rigorour academic experience. if you delayed applying because some circumstance prevented you from doing so (say, health, family reasons, etc...), then you may be able to contact any school in which you have a interest and see if they will take a late application. Couldn't hurt; but your reason should be notable to try this. I would consider this at schools ranked mid-to lower on the list of top 50 as opposed to top 25 schools; but, this may depend on why you are applying late. Good luck.

Thanks, guys. Your responses have been really helpful.

Iflyjets- I actually applied to a handful of schools (4) on time, but I'm no longer confident that I'll be accepted to any of them. ((A recent "unlikely" from Wellesley has me all scurred...))

I understand. The unpredictable nature of this whole process can be so intimidating and seemingly haphazard. Good luck.
