Class Rank Release Timing

Postby maf70 » Sat Apr 30, 2011 5:06 pm

My school doesnt release class rank until mid-July for second semester. How will this affect my shot at transferring to a T14 coming from a TTT?

Just to be clear, I have my rank from 1st semester.

If grades are released earlier you'll be ok. The schools can probably figure out where you are in the class with those, especially if they are similar to your first semester grades. It's not that hard for them to extrapolate grades, especially if they are used to dealing with your school. They should be pretty familiar with where you fall based on two semesters of grades and one semester of rank.

Previous poster is absolutely right. One thing you might consider as well though is including a grade distribution chart from last year (if your school makes this available online or something). It will only be a rough estimate, but it could help make sure your target school has at least some idea, in case they don't have past experience with transfers from your current school.

I have the exact breakdown from last semester so it would show where I stand. Attach it as an addendum?

Yeah, with that and grades, you should be ok. Then just get them your updated rank as soon as possible. You shouldn't have too much of a problem
