On March 17th, we were very excited to hear that 112 Lake View seniors have been accepted to DePaul University, right here in Chicago. That equates to an 82% acceptance rate for LVHS seniors who have applied to DePaul. Moreover, several students have been offered very generous scholarships from DePaul, including the Dean Scholarship and the St. Vincent DePaul Award, which range between $38,000 to $54,000 spread out over 4 years.
DePaul University, who enjoys a community partnership with Lake View is also very excited about this news. To further assist students in making their decision on where they will attend by May 1st (College Decisions Day), a representative from DePaul, Ms. Hallie Harmon, will be visiting Lake View on April 2nd to personally congratulate all 112 students and provide them with more information on the next steps of the enrollment process.
Ms. Harmon also writes, “I am excited to connect with Lake View students who have been admitted to DePaul University for the fall of 2015. I am visiting on April 2 to help break down the next steps process which includes placement exams, applying for housing (if you plan to do so, it’s not required) as well as registering for orientation, Premiere DePaul. If you are unable to visit with me at Lake View on 4/2, you are always welcome to visit our campus Monday through Saturday. We’d love to show you around!”
Students with any questions can reach out to the Counseling Department in Room 112, or Ms. Harmon directly for more information (hharmon
