New Video on the Web

Just yesterday we launched some great new video on the admissions web pages. Visit admissions.wpi.edu and click on some of the links under "Information For" on the bottom right....you'll get to see and hear from some of our students.


Travel and App Deadlines

WPI's second open house of the fall is just around the corner. On Tuesday campus will be packed with hundreds of students and families checking out the campus. Weather looks to be nice but a bit chilly. Hope to see you there.

Most of our recruitment travel is wrapping up for the fall season, however we still have staff on the road. Adam will be heading to PA next week, Michelle is on her way to Eastern Europe tonight and will be visiting Romania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Poland and Germany, and Karen is currently in Turkey. It's been a busy travel season for everyone but we've been pleased to see so many students on the road. If we didn't get to your hometown this fall hopefully you will come and pay us a visit instead.

Our Early Action - Round I deadline is just a week away. We often get questions about the deadline. If you are applying on-line you should be sure you submit your application on or before the 15th. My best advice is don't wait until the 15th...the common app server slows down quite a bit on deadline days, and ours sometimes has the same problems!!

If you are submitting a paper application you should plan to get it postmarked on or before the 15th. Now if you live locally you can even drop your app off on the 15th. We'll be open from 8:30AM to 3:00PM next Saturday.
