We are proud to announce early decision and acceptance results for Aiglon's Class of 2020.
For students to be fully prepared to submit competitive early applications, the real work begins in Year 12 with research, personal essay and statement drafts and lots of conversation with counsellors and teachers. Members of the Class of 2020 have worked diligently and are now receiving excellent news.
United States & Global
Several students applied early decision to US universities resulting in eight acceptances. They will enrol at the following institutions in the autumn: Boston College, Bryn Mawr College, Duke University, NYU, NYU-Tisch School of the Arts, Northeastern, University of Pennsylvania and University of Rochester.
In addition, students earned acceptances through early action admission rounds, including most notably: Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne, Fordham, Minerva Schools, Norwich, Univ of Notre Dame, Univ of San Francisco, Univ of Toronto.
In some cases, students receive a "defer" decision; their applications are re-evaluated in the next round: Babson, Georgetown, Harvard, Princeton and Yale.
