Picking the Best Offer

After you receive acceptance letter(s), you need to pick the best offer, which can be a difficult decision.

When deciding which admissions offer to accept, you should consider:

  • Whether the school has the program you want – this may have changed since you submitted your applications
  • Whether the school can provide the accommodations that you need
  • How comfortable you felt at the school during your visit – review your notes from your school visits
  • Determine whether financial aid offers between schools are an important factor

If you are stuck between two schools, create a pros and cons list. You can also talk to your parents, teachers, and school counselor for advice.
