Hurricane Sandy and our Early Decision admission deadline

With Hurricane Sandy working its way up the East Coast of the United States this week, we are extending our Early Decision deadline from November 1 to November 15, thereby allowing students the additional grace period they need to complete their applications.

If you know your geography, you may be scratching your head right now, thinking, “But Lawrence is in Wisconsin; hurricanes don’t go there.” You’re right; they don’t (and we’re thankful for that).

However, plenty of our prospective students are in the way of this storm, and we figured they have more important things to contend with right now. Rather than limit this extension to students in geographic areas in the path of the storm, we determined it would be easier to simply relax the deadline for everybody.

If you have already submitted your Early Decision application—or think you’ll be able to do so by November 1—we will still plan to notify you of our decision by November 15.

If you submit your application after the November 1 deadline, but by November 15, we will plan to notify you of our decision by December 1.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss any of this with our admissions counselors. In the meantime, if you’re in the path of this storm, stay safe. The rest of us are thinking about you.
