Didn’t get into the college you applied to? Forgot to send in your application? Have no fear procrastinators- it’s not too late!
The college application process can be stressful for many college-bound seniors. It’s easy to put off applying until you realize the deadline for your desired school has passed. Luckily there are 13 universities still accepting applications, some are even local. So if you’re currently unsure of your plans for next year and want to go to college, there are still some options.
The 13 schools still accepting applications are:
1. Allegheny College, Pennsylvania
2. Boise State University, Idaho
3. Chapman University, California
4. Columbia College Chicago
5. Fairleigh Dickinson University, New Jersey
6. University of Maine
7. University of Alabama in Huntsville
8. Morehouse College, Georgia
9. Ohio Wesleyan University
10. Savannah College of Art and Design
11. York St John University, United Kingdom
12. John Cabot University, Italy
13. Marymount Manhattan College, New York
Some Penn Manor seniors were, or still are, unsure of their plans for next year.
Eric Bear didn’t know what he was going to do about college due to a cruise he was taking that would have caused him to miss the first week of freshman classes.
“I didn’t know what I was going to do, but then I got the opportunity to go to study abroad in Paris so I’m doing that,” Bear said.
Ella Perry is attending Temple University next year, but she could have been in trouble had she not gotten in because that was the only school she applied to. For Perry, a school accepting applications late in the year might have been an option.
“I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t gotten in, I would’ve scrambled,” Perry said.
Hannah Willett is still not sure what she is doing next year, but forgetting to apply to schools was not a problem for her.
“I applied to colleges and got accepted but just decided I didn’t want to go,” Willett said.
Willett said the schools still accepting applications do not interest her.
Whether you’re planning on going to college or not, universities still accepting applications allow you to keep your options open.
