The admissions committee at St. Mary's
College of Maryland has carefully evaluated
your application. I regret that the College is
not able to offer you admission at this time.
Most days I love my job. On days when I have
to deny students admission, I hate it. I know
this decision stings. No doubt you are
wondering what you did wrong or where you
came up short.
I would encourage you to move beyond those
thoughts. Next fall, you are going to be at a
college where you will grow and learn. You
will make many good lifelong friends and
enjoy new ventures, and four years from now
you will hold a degree from an institution you
I sincerely thank you for your interest in St.
Mary's College of Maryland, and I wish you
all success and happiness in your future
Patricia F. Goldsmith
Dean of Admissions
