Instant Decision Days

Three private institutions of higher education, Arcadia University, Rider University and Fairleigh Dickenson, participated in the CHS Counseling Department’s Instant Decision Days this week. The three universities made six admission offers to four students, including a clean sweep for Kayla Marshall, who was the Eastern Center for Arts and Technology’s Student of the Month in September.

Marshall, along with Meilana Deputy, Quincy Rhoades and Lisa Lam, was offered admission to Cheltenham Township’s Arcadia University, a global university and pioneer in international education.

Rider University, a 5,000-student institution in Lawrence Township, N.J., with colleges of business administration, liberal arts, education and sciences, continuing studies, and the renowned Westminster Choir College, extended admission to Marshall, who earned an annual $18,000 Provost’s Scholarship with a four-year value of $72,000. The scholarship was competitive and awarded based on a comprehensive review of Marshall’s academic record, including cumulative high school GPA, rigor of academic course selection, test scores and other supporting credentials.

Marshall also gained admission to Fairleigh Dickenson, a multi-campus institution based in New Jersey with 26 majors and nine academic units.  

During the interview, students provide college-related information and answer questions. At the conclusion of the interview, the admission counselor will either offer admission to their institution or provide the student with tips on how they can increase their chances in the regular decision application process. Offers of admission are non-binding, though some schools will be awarding scholarships during their Instant Decision Day appointments.
