During a time when students need to focus on sending off the rest of their college applications, it can be extremely deflating to get a letter of deferral from your early college choice. There are a few things that you can do to pick up your boot straps and march forward.

  1. Continue to work hard the next few weeks to ensure that your first semester grades are worth bragging about.
  2. Be sure to ask your guidance counselor to send the college your first semester grades as soon as they become available. You can also ask your counselor if they would write a note to support your application.
  3. Reach out to the college admission counselor that is responsible for your geographic region. Relay any new accomplishments and reiterate your strong interest in the school. Make sure that you write the letter, not your parents.
  4. Carefully consider the rest of your college choices to ensure that you will have options come April. Put as much work into these applications that you did into the very first.
  5. Do not feel deflated – there are hundreds of colleges that would be happy to have you.
