It's sort of a complicated situation because the incomplete is for my senior project. My professor granted me an extension to finish the project and gave me an "I" instead of a grade. Normally, senior projects are done over 2 quarters so it's not an unusual occurrence. I considered just turning in what I have written so far for a grade but it would still take weeks to process, so that's out of the question.
Do you think this incomplete will hurt me? I plan to write an addendum explaining all of it in detail and maybe having my prof write something up. Once the 'I' changes to a grade I'll quickly send them another updated transcript if I still haven't heard anything.
What do you guys think? I really want to go to Davis and I take this as a good sign that they're strongly considering me.
I can't see it as hurting you, as long as the other grades are solid. One more grade out of many is unlikely to seriously deviate from your average at this point. So, they ought to be able to judge your transcript as is.
It's probably more that they want the file to be 'complete', so to speak.
Did you receive the email on Saturday? I'm wondering if they work on the weekends, which means I ought to be checking the status checker on weekends now.
Awesome, that makes me feel a little better. The other grades are solid, they even gave my GPA a tiny boost.
I did receive the email on a Saturday! It was from the Associate Director of Admissions and Outreach as well. Maybe they're trying to get caught up with seat deposit deadlines approaching. We can only hope...
I agree with the above advice, but I would also suggest that you make sure to have your teacher write a brief explanation or have her sign what you write. I had supporting documents for my addendum on another matter and i think it might have helped me out when my file was reviewed. best of luck!
