Countdown to Notification: March 15

March 6, 2012

Today, campus weather hit its warmest yet — it’s currently 61 degrees, and students have shed their winter gear for outdoor wear and frisbee tossing. The plazas and sitting areas not covered with melting snow have livened up with groups of students in t-shirts and shorts reading, talking, and enjoying lunch. What a wonderful preview for full-on spring!

Inside the Admissions Office, the admissions committee works toward finalizing the Class of 2016 as we welcome visitors to campus. I love this time of year, as it is always a thrill to meet (or see again) the students whose applications I read and who will form the next class of Oles. As we answer phone calls and emails, I would like to remind our applicants that we will be notifying students of admission to St. Olaf on the same day, by March 15 at the latest. While some schools have notified based on rolling admission notification dates, St. Olaf reviews applications on a holistic basis to ensure that we form the next class of St. Olaf students in the best way possible. This is why we have a single-notification application process. So, in the next week and a half or so, we continue to thank you for your patience. It won’t be too much longer!

Say hello to two of our Admissions student workers, Mary Claire and Sam. The one in shorts was especially excited about the balmy weather on campus today.

    Hi there, I’m an international student applying to St. Olaf College. I currently live in New York. However, I have not received any notification. Can you tell me when decision will be released ?
