Do you COVID-19 will impact the result of how many students will be accepted into selective universities this year?
As a senior who has applied to a various number of schools, I was surprised to hear I was waitlisted at a school I expected to be accepted into. Other than other factors that absolutely could have affected this decision, do you think COVID-19 will change how many students colleges across the US will accept?

I don't think COVID-19 will have any effect on the admissions policy. I think that schools are businesses and they are in the business of educating.
I think that they must carry a certain number of students every year to meet budget goals. With that being said, I think that COVID-19 may effect the way classes are being taught and online education may be a more likely tool than classroom learning.
Hope this helps,
The Covid virus has turned a normally, functional society into crazies. In economic downfalls people stuff mattresses with cash and buy gold. I have a 64 oz bottle of hand sanitizer in my home...I could likely sell it on the street and pay for two years of my daughter's college.
Please call the schools and admissions counselors. This pandemic has altered a lot of physical labor and priorities. Lesley is 100% correct about decision day...but that was also before the country went nuts looking for toilet paper and Purell. So...I'm not sure where you applied, but all bets are off the table. My daughter's school is closed until late April now...
I can't speak to the acceptance policies of other schools, but...just for giggles...pick up the phone...and hope you get an answer. You have no idea how much things have been delayed. And no matter what...whatever college/university you go to...never...ever...drop out/stop attending. It's only four years. You can do it!!!
