Peabody is the building, Jack is the dog, and I'm Dean J (she/her, btw).

Three notes:
1. There's fifteen years of posts here, so the search box can help find an answer to common questions, but please consider the age of the posts when you find them. The college admission process changes over time!

2. The comment box doesn't show up when viewing the blog optimized for mobile. Click the "view full site" link at the bottom of the page and the site will reload with comment boxes.

3. Pick a name, real or otherwise, if posting a comment.

Welcome to the blog and thanks for reading!

Blog Comment Lag

My decision day tradition usually has me stepping away from the blog for a day to let students chat.  It also gives me a day off after being in application mode since November.  I usually return to the blog on Sunday to start responding to questions that have been posted by students while I was away.

Just like I've done in past years, I spent much of yesterday responding to comments that came into the blog on Friday and Saturday.  Unbeknownst to me, the comment platform I use, Disqus, has a bug and wasn't posting my replies.

I spent the morning cutting and pasting comments back into the blog and I *think* I have gotten back to everyone who had a question.  If I did not respond to your question over the weekend, please know that it was not intentional. 

Obviously, I'm now a day behind on providing updates.  I'll have some statistics ready for you tomorrow.  Sorry for the wait.

 The blog had an owie.
