Early Action I...

decision letters have gone out! Here's hoping that you got good news from us in the awesome purple envelope, but if not, please don't be discouraged...

If you've been deferred from Saint Michael's College, please know that you have absolutely not received a denial letter - just as your letter says, "our hope is to encourage you to do your very best academic work in your high school classes at this time. You should know that last year we admitted a large percentage of students who were deferred during our early action review." It's so important to understand how much everyone here is pulling for you - as long as you really step up your game in the next few months and send us all of the results. Another piece of advice - keep in touch with us! It really demonstrates your interest when we see how much admission to Saint Michael's means to you.

If you've received a denial letter, please know that the door is not completely closed. As the letter says, our decision is final for the Fall of 2011 and we cannot reconsider you during our Regular Action deadline, however we very much hope that you will continue your education at another institution and will consider applying to Saint Michael's as a transfer student in the future if your interest persists (after you have completed at least two full-time semesters).

And of course, a huge congratulations goes out to everyone who was accepted into the Saint Michael's College Class of 2015! We had a record breaking number of applications for our Early Action I deadline and anticipate this this trend will continue - so congratulations on a job well done!

More Extended Service!

**If you're participating in the Holiday Video Contest, please comment on the post right below this!**

I've known about this for a while, but am just getting around to tell you lovely blog readers now - I was chosen to lead one of MOVE's (Mobilization of Volunteer Efforts) Extended Service Trips this winter! Myself and my fearless student leader Evan and I will be taking our group to Baltimore, MD to work with a variety of organizations through Catholic Charities of Baltimore

I am so excited for this opportunity - my two service trips (one to David, KY and the other to the Dominican Republic) were absolutely crucial to my experience at Saint Michael's and I am very much looking forward to facilitating that experience for a group of current students. We'll be heading out on January 8th and have a full day free where we are planning to go to Washington DC and then will do a full week of service.

I'll keep you updated!

Mike the Angel loves service!
