Waiting Game: 2014 Admissions Decisions Dates



Are you waiting to get your admissions decisions letter from your dream school? If you are, then this can be a trying and anxious time for you. While you’re waiting, we have provided you with some activities to keep your mind off the mail man. Additionally, we listed the approximate date of when the top 25 American universities are planning to send out their admissions letters. 

1. Get your documents ready for the visa application.
Once you receive that special email or letter, the first thing you want to do is to start applying for your student visa. American universities will provide you with Form I-20 to take to the embassy to prove that you are planning to study at the university. You'll also need a passport, photos, and a complete visa application. Some other documents they may ask you for are transcripts, test scores, financial statements, and more so get all of these prepared early on.

2. Start applying for a credential evaluation.If your school requires you to complete a credential evaluation, then start the process early. Depending on the institution, requesting transcripts may take a while. Check out how-to apply for a verified credential evaluation with World Education Services

3. Send "Thank you" cards.During this application season, you will have undoubtedly received some help or support from those around you. To express your appreciation, start sending out some "Thank you" letters to these individuals and be specific on how they have helped you along the way. This will be a good way to keep the relationship on good-standing since you never when when you might need their help again. 

We hope these dates and tips can be helpful for everyone. The WES Advisor team is here on this journey with you and hope that all students will attend their dream school! We wish everyone good luck!
