Seeking Parent Feedback on the Admissions Process

Have you just survived the College admission process this year with your soon-to-be high school graduate? The Office of Admissions invites you to join a candid conversation about your recent personal experiences in this process.

  • Everything is on the table for discussion:
  • Recruitment brochures
  • Campus visit (info sessions, tours, open house, admitted student events)
  • Off campus activities hosted by other universities
  • Admission communication with your student (from email to the decision letter)
  • Parent specific communication
  • Faculty, student, alumni interaction

What stood out to you (or your child) positively or negatively?  What did you like or not like about the process?  What do you wish you knew then that you know now?  What great ideas should UMW consider implementing?

Join Melissa Yakabouski, Director of Undergraduate Admissions for lunch on Wednesday, June 8 from noon to 1 p.m. in Lee Hall for a conversation about the good, the bad, and the so-so.  Gather your thoughts and perceptions about UMW and other schools your child was considering. RSVP no later than June 6 at myak@umw.edu or admit@umw.edu.  Unable to attend but have something to share, please email Melissa to schedule time to speak about your specific takeaways.

We look forward to hearing from you!
