Waitlisted/Deferred Advice

If a student is interested in attending a college where they are waitlisted, it is important to stay in contact with that university. Send the Admissions Counselor assigned to Colorado updated materials such as: 
 
- Improved GPA/Grades or a Midyear Report
- Awards or Achievements since sending the original application
- An updated resume if you have several updates 
- Additional Letters of Recommendation - particularly from teachers or individuals in your field that can speak to why that University should admit you/why you are an excellent candidate
- Any other information that might be helpful for the Admissions Officer when reconsidering you for admission
 
Letter of Continued Interest: It is imperative that waitlisted or deferred students contact their Admissions Counselor with a letter of continued interest. Here are some helpful templates and links regarding this process:
