William Penn seniors: Sign up for Instant Decision Day on January 18

Posted on January 4th, 2019

Representatives from nine institutions of higher education will visit William Penn Senior High School on Friday, Jan. 18 to interview students and potentially extend offers of admission.

In order to receive an “instant decision” of admission from an institution, students must complete that institution’s application before their appointment. Representatives will also consider a student’s GPA, transcript and SAT score in deciding whether to offer admission.

Students can request appointments to meet with representatives for feedback on an application not yet submitted.

The following institutions will send representatives to meet with students on Instant Decision Day:

Wilson College
Harrisburg Area Community College
Edinboro University
Alvernia University
York College of Pennsylvania
Cheyney University of Pennsylvania
Millersville University
Bloomsburg University
Shippensburg University

Students can choose to meet with multiple representatives on Jan. 18 and potentially receive multiple offers of admission. In most cases, students should choose whether to accept an offer of admission by May 1.

The Instant Decision Day opportunity is open to any senior interested in pursuing higher education.

To participate, students must sign up with Raven Charleston, who is a College and Career Adviser at William Penn. She can be contacted at charlrav@ycs.k12.pa.us.
