if I miss the deadline for admissions can I still talk to the office of admissions and get accepted?
I have applied and gotten accepted to rutgers university and penn state university, although both of thee universities are a bit expensive for me, so i was wondering if I could request the office of admissions for George mason university and Virginia commonwealth university for admission even though their deadlines have passed. I live 20 minutes away from George mason and can drive to the admissions office and i am willing to drive to the VCU admissions office.

Having worked at the Admissions office of one my schools, the timeline of the process is usually adhered to, but these are unusual times for the education sector (perhaps, they will be amenable this time?).
Contact them and make an appointment if the administrative offices are open this week/month (have all of the application materials ready; if you're going there, you might as well hand them in?).
Good Luck and Stay Well,

Sometimes colleges will extend their application deadlines for students. When this happens, the college usually updates their website to reflect this change. I encourage you to reach out to the admissions counselors (of both schools) for your region. Introduce yourself, explain your situation, and inquire about what your options are. This will allow you to build a personal connection with a representative of the school(s) that you are interested in for now and the future.
