In lieu of everything that's been happening with UNCW lately, I've been thinking...and I'm sure this has already been a thought before, I just wanted to vent a little I guess.
Just some thoughts on April 15
What if, instead of this April 15th deadline of sorts, that gives schools ALL this time from Jan-April, really...why couldn't we have a week, say the first week of March--where all schools were required to notify. Acceptances, Waitlisters, Rejections...Day 1-First round acceptances. Day 2-Second round from people who declined their first offer. Day 3-acceptances off the waitlist, etc. And say...all students had to accept or decline by that Friday...or even the next Friday. Say, perhaps, that acceptances could be offered past this notification week, but that they would be simply "extra bonuses", if you will, for people who may not have accepted a previous offer...I don't know...I do know that there are flaws in my theory. It just seems to me that there should be a less-stressful way to go about MFA acceptances, rather than this four-month span of maybe-so's and what-if's.
Okay, I'm done. :) Hope this week proves to be kind to all.
