NEW! We’ve made a few updates to the high school admissions process!
These updates will not change how you apply to high school, how you get an offer, or where you get an offer. Here's what's new:
When you get your high school offer, you’ll also receive a list of programs where you’ve been waitlisted.
You’ll be automatically added to the waitlist of any program that you listed higher on your application than the program where you received an offer. Learn more in the Get Your High School Offer Letter section below.
