This Sunday, December 8, is MHC’s annual Christmas Vespers. It’s a must for the holiday season. There are two shows—4 and 7:30pm. Be sure to get in line early for a good seat!
You want to see hard work? A single mother with two kids is unemployed, but she never gets a day off. She works 24/7, never gets a break, and can’t call in for sick days. She works to keep herself and her two children alive harder than most will ever work in their lives. POVERTY IS NOT THE UNWILLINGNESS TO WORK.
I swear our library is a Doctor Who episode waiting to happen. #dontblink
This is probably true.
Thanks for the info, dining services.
I was accepted ED, had my grades drop because of life circumstances, as well as was suspended from school, but they did not reverse my acceptance. So, honestly, if I am studying here after all that then I can't imagine them reversing anyone else's acceptance (unless you murder someone probably).
That’s what I was thinking. Like. If you screw up to the point where there’s a federal manhunt, you might worry. But other than that? You’ve proved your might to the school if they accept you ED, so just do your best, anon, and it’ll all be fine!
Good luck with Finals, folks.
just wanted to tell you something you might not know! anyway, i see you do lots of tags, and your blog is very well-tagged :) BUT did you know that only the first 5 tags show up when you search for a tagged post on tumblr? the rest are just internal blog tags. if that's what you're using them for (like someone on this site wants info about dining services, so they click that tag), that's awesome, but yeah, only the first 5 show up in searches.
That’s why the MHC tags come first ;)
I actually just learned that fact a little while ago, and tagging how I do has become such a habit and it works how I’d like it to so I just haven’t changed. Anything outside the ‘mount holyoke mountholyoke mtholyoke mountholyoke mhc moho’ thing ARE internal tags that I use to find past answers to refer askers back to, as well as for the catalog of answers you can find HERE. I also track the Mount Holyoke and Mount Holyoke College tags, so I get a thrill from seeing my posts pop up in there every time I click ‘publish…’
Thanks for the heads-up, though!
I'm the last anon responding to ED/EA anon and I did some research! It looks like when you get your acceptance on Feb 1, there's not really a "decision period"-- you must withdraw all other applications immediately. The only reason you can break ED is if the college agrees that they have not met your need and you cannot afford MHC. However, MHC has good aid, and hopefully you will be well-supported. Unfortunately I doubt you will be able to wait 15 days for Hampshire.
Thanks for your info/contribution! I really love seeing how supportive and dedicated MHC students following this blog are. You make answering questions and interacting with you all a constant joy.

The only reason that ended up working is because they're not both ED. Early Decision is binding; you signed a contract. If you are accepted, UNLESS you do not get your aid met, you have made a commitment to attend & must withdraw all other apps (they've done this for years, I'm sure they have ways of checking). Early Action is just an early application. If the deadline for MHC decision is before the 15th, you cannot wait for Hampshire. If it's after, you can wait, but don't cut it too close...
Yeah! Thank you for clearing that up for me, I’m really not great at technical things. Thanks, anon!
Here you go, Other anon!
Hi! I'm a prospective student who applied ED and had recently had to move to a new school for my mother's job. I'm typically a straight A(sometimes a B or two) with a high gpa. Since my new school is lacking one of my AP classes and it seems I'm behind in another I fear my grades will drop with only half the quarter left and little time to catch up. If I am accepted and admissions later sees my grades drop on the mid-year report how may they react? Is moving a good excuse?
If you’re accepted and then have a little shift in grades due to life circumstances, I’m pretty sure they’ll be mum on the subject. Once admitted, especially ED where you have a contract to attend, it’ll take more than a little stress on your senior grades to affect what they think of you. If the question does come up somehow in your discussion with MHC and the Admissions people, I assure you they’re the most understanding people and they’ll help you work through whatever’s going on so that you can enjoy your time here!
did the confessional get shut down?
Uhhhh, Nope. Nope. I just checked. It’s still there, horrid thing that it is.
