A time of great fear and excitement is upon high school seniors as acceptance letters from local colleges come trickling in.
Last week, hopefuls heard back from Boston College, Boston University, Northeastern University, and Brandeis. Applicants will receive much-anticipated decisions from Wellesley College, Tufts University, Amherst College, and Ivy Leagues in the coming weeks.
Some colleges have used social media to let students know the letters have been sent:
We're excited to welcome a new group of Terriers to the BU community today. Congratulations #BU2018!— Boston University (@BU_Tweets) March 22, 2014
Better still for accepted students, many area colleges offered their congratulations directly.
