Any shot at GULC

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jan 14, 2014 10:03 pm

I finished 1st semester somewhere between top 1/3 to top 25%. Should find out soon. Do I have any shot, or should I not bother sending an app and getting an LOR until next semester.

Shouldn't it be somewhat contingent on the general rank of the school you're applying from?

Realistically, it is probably a stretch to get in early action. I transferred last year, and judging by the 2013 GULC waiting thread (and ones from years prior), it is generally the top 10% people who find success in the EA process, while the rest are deferred until after second semester grades are released.

If you think you can pick up a good LOR now, it doesn't hurt to apply. You'll likely be deferred to the regular admission cycle though. You should really focus on grades for now though - if you can get closer to 15/20%, you'd have much better odds.

Probably not bro. Sorry. Get to top 20% and try in spring.
