This letter will include your high school offer. This offer may be to a program from the high school application process, and/or to one of the testing specialized high schools, and/or to one or more studios at LaGuardia.
Your letter will also include a SHSAT score if you took the SHSAT, and/or information about your LaGuardia High School audition if you auditioned.
Additionally, this letter will include a list of programs where you've been waitlisted. You’ll be automatically added to the waitlist of any program that you listed higher on your application than the program where you received an offer. For example, if you got an offer from your 5th choice, you would be on the waitlists of choices 1-4.
Waitlist OffersHigh school programs that have more applicants than seats available will have waitlists. Please note that the specialized high schools will not have waitlists. You'll be able to get on waitlists in two ways:
Through the high school application: You will be automatically added to the waitlist for any program that you listed higher on your application than the program to which you received an offer.
Post-application: You can add yourself to waitlists for schools that you did not apply to but are now interested in.
Students will have a unique placement on each waitlist based on a school’s admissions method and priority structure:
For schools that have open admissions, students will be ordered randomly within their priority group (e.g. zoned priority; district priority).
For schools that rank students based on a screen or audition, students will be ordered based on their rank within their priority group.
Your position may shift on waitlists as other students are called off or added to waitlists.
You will be able to learn of your position on each waitlist you are on through MySchools, Family Welcome Centers and your current school.
There is no limit to how many waitlists you can be on.
