I sort of want to say to them, listen, you have to report my lsdas anyway since I'm accepted and going here, but don't you think that my really high GPA and upward trend should be considered in the merit aid process? Because honestly, I think it should. I'm getting married this year and I just graduated college, I actually really can't afford to pay sticker and any little bit helps. I'm going to attach recommendations from professors I had this year who will testify that a.) I'm a great student (and my LSDAS isn't indicative of my capabilities) and b.) I didn't slack off just because it was senior year, and hope for the best.
Any other suggestions?
Ouch. Do you mind if I ask how you took such a big hit on GPA?
LOL sure...it was easy, actually, because I never went to class freshman year, ranked second to last in my class and dropped out, then got my life together, transferred schools, and did 3/4 of my college education at a different school. So my degree-granting university GPA is practically straight As, but LSDAS takes into account all schools one has ever attended in her entire life.
