Snapshots of St. George's
Good news came to a special group of students across the globe this morning as the Admission Office sent acceptance letters to about 200 seeking to become Dragons.
The welcome letters come after a highly successful admission season for St. George’s in which 750 students applied for just 100 spaces.
Director of Admission Ryan Mulhern called this year “a highly competitive scenario” for aspiring Dragons. “We are thrilled with the quality and diversity of the candidates in our applicant pool,” he said, noting that today’s acceptance notifications went out to students from 18 countries and 30 states.
Since day-student applications were due on Jan. 15, and boarding-student applications were due by Feb. 1, some difficult decisions had to be made by the admission team.
“We know that we are very fortunate to have a far greater number of qualified applicants than we could ever accept,” Ryan said.
“But while these numbers are a positive indicator of St. George’s growing appeal, they also mean that we have to turn away more students,” he added. “We often wish our small community could be larger when it comes time to make decisions on March 10.”
