CPC & University at Buffalo Host First-Ever Instant Decision Day
On Saturday, December 3rd, CPC Youth Services partnered with the University at Buffalo to host the organization's first-ever "Instant Decision Day" at the CPC Queens Community Center. Organized by CPC's Project Gateway College Counseling Center, the event provided college-bound high school Seniors with an opportunity to have their applications reviewed by admissions representatives from the University at Buffalo (consistently ranked as a Top 50 public research institution) in person.
The event was an overwhelming success. Of the 36 students who attended, 21 of them were given non-binding offers of admission on the spot, making the acceptance rate for the event 58%. The remaining students received valuable advice on what they could do to strengthen their application for further review during the school's regular admissions process.
“We were thrilled to be able to partner with SUNY Buffalo for our first-ever ‘Instant Decision Day’ and offer students this unique opportunity to get accepted into college on the day that they applied,” said Janice Won, Interim President & CEO of CPC. “Knowing that 21 members from the local community have already been accepted to SUNY Buffalo makes us very proud.”
