Preface to Bates — May 11-13, 2014
Preface to Bates is a fly-in visitation program designed for high-achieving high school juniors who are first-generation-to-college students and/or students of color.
You’ll get to attend student panels, classes and general information sessions about admission and financial aid. Your stay on campus will be hosted by a current student so that you can really see the academic, athletic, cultural and cocurricular offerings of the college.
Travel scholarships are available.
Please note that your high school guidance counselor will need to submit a copy of your transcript, a letter of recommendation and your school’s profile. When you submit your application, an email will be automatically generated to your counselor requesting these materials. Please make sure that your counselor submits these materials by Friday, March 28th. The Bates College Office of Admission will release final Preface decisions on or around April 16th.
