Frequently Asked Questions about the Waitlist

What is the waitlist?
Each year we must create a waitlist for students who are not accepted on March 10, but who are qualified students for Beaver. Students are placed on the waitlist because we are a small school and we can only accept a limited number of students for each grade.

When will you accept students from the waitlist?
We will not be able to accept any students off the waitlist until after our enrollment deadline of April 10. After April 10, the Admission Committee will re-evaluate candidates on the waitlist and pending availability, a student previously waitlisted may be offered enrollment.

What should I do if I am interested in remaining on the waitlist?
If you are interested in staying on our waitlist, please contact the Admission Office by email ( or phone (617-738-2725) no later than Monday, March 26, 2018. Only those students who contact us by this date will remain on the waitlist.

Is your waitlist ranked?
Our waitlist is not ranked.

If I am not accepted off the waitlist this year is it appropriate for me to reapply next year?
We welcome all students to re-apply to Beaver if they have been placed on the waitlist.

Will Financial Aid be available if I am accepted off the waitlist?
Need-based aid is granted to qualified students accepted from the waitlist who have met the Financial Aid application deadline.
