Holiday Wishes From Mom of A Yale Student Who Received Expert College Advice


I always enjoy receiving mail from families I’ve worked with in the past.  Today I received this nice note the mom of one of my students from last year.  She was accepted to Princeton Early Action, and then to Yale and Stanford in the regular round.  I also worked with her brother two years previously; he attends Swarthmore College.

Here is the text of her message:


Dear Mark,

As this is again the time of the year when your applicants are waiting to hear their ED/EA decisions, I remember how happy we were last year at this exact time when our daughter heard from Princeton her EA acceptance.  I would like to let you know that she is very happy at Yale and is thriving.  She just loves the place and feels that she made the right decision to go to Yale.  She is coming home next Wednesday morning and her brother next Sunday afternoon.  We would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and a very happy New Year.
Best regards,
