The "pool" is open from April 1 through August 31, so why not jump in now? Participation is voluntary and is advantageous for both denied applicants and schools. The College Redirection module allows denied applicants who have not been accepted into their school of choice to be recruited by colleges they may not have considered; it allows NC colleges seeking to fill admissions openings to prospect from a pool of interested, qualified candidates.
