Hi Any idea when the Financial packages may be released?
This year, give your student a gift that will make a difference. Time Management Secrets for College Students: The Underground Playbook for Managing School, Work, and Fun
Really hoping you will consider moving the deposit date of May 1 back in light of all of these current issues!! Our current seniors are having a hard time with everything...considering they may not return to high school at all. Giving them a little breathing room to make a very difficult decision seems like the right thing to do.
UMass Amherst has a highly ranked Engineering Department and the campus is Beautiful !!!!
When are acceptance letters going out for regular decision?
