Things to Keep in Mind
- Notification and reply dates and deadlines to which ISAAGNY schools must adhere.
- Application fee and a school’s policy on waiver of that fee.
- Whether a school will accept applications and grant interviews based on a numerical limit (total applications) or chronological deadline (fixed date).
- Whether you qualify as a sibling or legacy for purposes of opting for Early Notification, if a school offers it.
- An applicant may qualify as a legacy or sibling at more than one school and request Early Notification at more than one school;
- Applicants have until December 1st to decide whether or not they want to request Early Notification;
- Admissions personnel may not ask families or directors of sending schools if an applicant has requested Early Notification at another school.
- If an applicant who could request Early Notification chooses not to do so, that applicant should consider communicating that decision to admissions personnel.
- If an applicant who has requested Early Notification accepts an early offer, the applicant must communicate that decision to all other schools where applications are pending and withdraw those applications.
- Cost of tuition and other fees, if applicable, as well as school hours, academic year and length of after school programs, if any.
YOU CANNOT BE REQUIRED TO:
- List on the application the names of other schools to which you are applying nor should you be asked for this information during the admissions process.
- Submit a first choice letter.
- Sign and submit a contract before the end of the reply period, even if you have been taken off a waitlist.
IF YOU ARE CURRENTLY ENROLLED AT A SCHOOL, YOU STILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO:
- Consider other educational options and the right to appropriate support in that process.
- Decide on your options until the end of the reply period for the grade to which you are applying.
You should feel free to contact admissions personnel with questions about their process and their schools.
