If you submitted an application to Trinity, you've received either a green postcard or a blue postcard over the past week or so. As you probably know, green postcard means you will be scheduled for a tour and interview while blue postcard means the school can't commit to an interview yet.

As far as who gets the special green postcard, the school says:
Our school cares deeply about diversity in the broadest sense of the word, seeking students of varied talents whose geographic, socioeconomic, racial, ethnic, gender, religious, and family backgrounds will enrich our community. We hope to enroll children from a variety of school programs.

Regardless of whether you got a green postcard or blue postcard, your chances at Trinity is not good this year. The word on the street is that most of the spots will be taken up by siblings and legacy, leaving less than 10 spots available out of 60. That means only 10 will get in out of the 400 or so that get interviews. Best to set the proper expectations for Trinity this year.
