I think everyone that posts on this blog can say that March 10th is a day that they won’t forget. For me, Exeter was my dream school: my acceptance letter was the culmination of months, if not years, of work. To the many students in a similar situation that I was in two years ago: congratulations, you made it! However, I recognize that some of the rest of you have shopped around for prep schools and are now faced with a choice as to what school you’ll be attending next fall. I think the best thing to be said for Exeter is this: yes, it is a lot of work, but you learn at a pace here that keeps you on your toes all the time, which is an extremely rewarding feeling. The things you can get involved in here – whether it is making new friends, picking up a new hobby, club, or sport, or learning how to live independently – make this school unique and well-worth four years of your education.
Again, congratulations to you: getting accepted is no small feat. I encourage you all to come to Experience Exeter: you get to shadow current students for a day, and it begins to give you a sense for the day-to-day life here.
See you on campus in a few weeks,
