Outstanding Early College Admissions for Class of 2017

Hector Martinez
The Class of 2017 is off to a great start with outstanding college admission acceptances for many of our early candidates! Some of America's most sought after colleges and universities have delivered some very happy news to our seniors right before the holiday season begins. Once again our students are faced with tremendous selectivity and what feels like outrageous competition both nationally and internationally, especially to those schools with the greatest name recognition like the Ivy League and "Junior Ivies.” With such odds, even the most well prepared students are feeling the pressure. So, it’s good to see the senior class coming together and being so supportive of each other during what can be a stressful time of year for them. The Webb Schools are very proud of all of our seniors. Students may be hearing from additional schools during the holiday break. Please check back after the holiday for an updated listing.

The following colleges and universities offered one or more early acceptances to members of the Class of 2017:

  • About Art School

    In an expose of sorts, one pegged to the publication of Gary Alan Fine’s new book Talking Art (U of Chicago Press, 2018), Charlie Tyson explores the facts and fictions surrounding MFA programs in the visual arts in America. A review of Fine’s book finds that seven of the 10 most expensive higher-education institutions in the U.S. are, in fact, art schools. But is it worth it? Maybe, if you want to be a professional artist. Tyson’s article also notes that more than half of the top 250 best-selling American artists at auction have an MFA.
