Anonymous : Hi, I was wondering if lots of people at Exeter wear UGGs, colored jeans or blazers. Also, are regular t-shirts allowed?
We don’t see too many uggs, but we definitely see colored pants and blazers. t-shirts are allowed around campus just not in assembly or classes.
Anonymous : If my sister went to Exeter does it increase my chances? Also, if I do badly on my SSAT will it effect me greatly? I am a freshman applying to Exeter for my sophomore year, and I am depending on Football and Baseball to get accepted.
I’m sure it has some effect on your chances but I couldn’t say for sure, only the admissions officers know! and everything is taken into account, not just grades, test scores, etc. they want to see you as a whole person!
Anonymous : how did you guys get started? did you have to get approval from the school?
We had the idea of doing it, and just started it! We never really seeked approval from the administration, but we have heard positive comments from the various faculty and staff that have seen it!
Anonymous : Hi! I have my interview soon and my situation is super complicated because i got sick and had to do online school for about a year now and i am about half/mostly done with most tenth grade classes. They said they don't admit till September or something. So is there anyway i could get an exception, have you seen anyone come mid year? Also i love you guys blog it has really "swayed" my opinion since there is a lot of negative stuff about exeter out there!!
I don’t think it’s possible to start halfway through, but you can always apply to redo sophomore year. Thank you so much, we really appreciate it!
