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!

A Mid-April Update

If you only follow me on this blog, you are probably wondering why it's been so quiet for the last few weeks. If you have followed me on Twitter or Instagram, you know that we've been hosting thousands of visitors each week between our Days on the Lawn open houses for admitted students and information sessions for juniors who are starting the college search.


Spring Break might last a week at your high school, but we experience large crowds of visitors for about three since schools schedule their breaks differently. We had full DOTLs on many Mondays and Fridays this month and gave 3-6 full information sessions on the "off" days.


One more item to throw into the mix: spring travel. Many staff members are making quick trips to college fairs, admitted student welcome events, and school programs this month.

Despite all this, there are staff members in the office every day, happy to field your questions if you are an admitted student trying to make your final decision. Don't hesitate to call us if we can help!
