So how will your good news arrive? Of course, I'm talking about getting the “You're in!" message from your first-choice college, or at least most of the colleges to which you applied.
Our family had the pleasure of seeing one of the more famous acceptance notifications back in December of 1994 when our son got his “Yes!" letter from Princeton University. It was kind of a curve ball, though. He applied Early Action to be a member of Princeton's Class of 1999. He also applied to three other schools (yes, those were the days before sending out 20 applications was no big deal) and had not yet heard from them.
