If your teen was waitlisted at a school he really wants to go to, he should politely reach out to the admissions office on a regular basis. Encourage him to write a positive, upbeat letter or email about why he wants to go there, ask a teacher to write an additional letter of recommendation, and let the school know about any new accomplishments. Persistence really can pay off.
