    Do you think the overturning of Roe v. Wade will impact college selection next year?

    The answer is "yes" for students who feel strongly about this issue or who worry that states that prohibit abortion will also begin to prohibit other rights they may care about (e.g., LGBTQ rights, BIPOC rights).

    If you want to read about this issue, check out the Business Insider article entitled "... more

    My company has asked me to relocate to Ohio and we could choose to live in the Chagrin Falls or Bexley areas. Which could better prep our kids for college and Ivy League admission?

    Hi there - Thanks for reaching out.  Though I serve families across the state, country, and even internationally, I am not as familiar with Bexley as I am with Chagrin Falls. Also, I believe many high schools are great at prepping kids for college AND please know that getting into the Ivy Leagu... more

    A friend's son was accepted to UCLA, yay! His portal had shown the acceptance, but after he told UCLA that she had changed a high school class, the portal is now saying, decision on hold or something like that. Does he need to escalate this to be sure that nothing "funny" hap

    Hello,

    An acceptance for admission is usually worded very carefully as being contingent upon something - like successful completion of current coursework (or in the case of the UCs, the need to successfully complete the A-G requirements).  I would suggest contacting the Office of Admissions for... more

We use a holistic application process, including essays, teacher recommendation, school transcript report, an interview, and other materials so we can gain a broad prospective of ... more

    Do the students need to request a letter of recommendation? Or, do the professors automatically write a letter of evaluation for the students? And, then, are these two options (rec and evaluation) the same or distinct?

    Thank you very much for your question about the program. Once scholars complete the program, each faculty mentor provides an evaluation for each scholar. The evaluation is intentional to speak to each scholars experience with undergraduate-level research completion. We distinctively provide evaluati... more

    Has COVID changed the admissions process for international students at Middlesex? (read more)

    COVID has not changed the entry requirements, but we have been flexible in regards to timing and accessibility to results.
