Following the third annual Decision Day at Cass Technical High School, sponsored by Michigan State University and Detroit Public Schools, hundreds of students now are working on the next step in the college application process: whittling their many college choices down to one.
Of the nearly 400 students who participated in Decision Day, approximately 1,422 college applications were submitted to the 18 participating universities. Decision Day is a large on-site program that allows students to bring their completed college applications in the morning and return in the afternoon to pick up admissions decisions.
The universities as a group tendered more than 880 offers of admission, and now students like Davonte Smith of Pershing High School have a choice to make among multiple acceptance letters.
The participating universities were: Central Michigan University, Eastern Michigan University, Ferris State University, Grand Valley State University , Lake Superior State University, Kettering University , Marygrove College, Michigan State University, Michigan Technological University, Northern Michigan University, Oakland University, Saginaw Valley State University, University of Detroit Mercy, University of Michigan – Ann Arbor, University of Michigan – Dearborn, University of Michigan – Flint, Wayne State University and Western Michigan University
