Seniors who were organized enough to submit their applications early are being rewarded with early college decisions – including scholarship offers! As of November 28th, 26 Magellan clients have received college admission letters so far, and we eagerly await more good news! We detail a few more metrics in this post.
For students who still need to submit applications, here’s some useful information:
