No grades...

Postby ms2010 » Fri Jun 17, 2011 8:12 am

Anyone else still waiting on grades and getting their applications delayed because of it?

Also - if we won't have our rank calculated until mid to end July... should we send the school a past breakdown?

same boat too...

my suggestion???

wait it out and hope for the best. when you get accepted and transfer, write a letter to your school that blasts the professor. hopefully any other students who are in the same position will do the same.

it really is awful...

For schools like GULC and Boalt, it probably has already hurt you. For many other schools, it probably won't hurt you much for a few more days (maybe a week).

Apply with what you have and add an addendum saying your school has not yet releases grades/rank and you'll send additional information when available.

Then you can follow up with your spring grades once they're out, and later your rank once it's released (if separately), and get your applications in before the deadline.

I actually applied to all of these schools and had my applications done in May. They've just been sitting waiting for one grade. When I contacted the schools this week, they told me I needed to wait until that final grade was in.

I almost feel lucky my school doesn't individually rank cause I just had them put that in my deans certs I sent in may.

Of course I don't know my exact rank which is kind of annoying.
