This is just silly now, and I haven't had coffee this morning, so I'm going to be cranky. Apologies.QuoteCan you send in your grades later on even if they don't ask for them?
Yes. Why the hell not? You paid the LSDAS over $100 for this very reason, so they can generate new reports as you send in updated transcripts and LORs.QuoteI suppose you could, but if you can get your GPA up that much higher, it would be better to apply with the best grades possible only about 6 weeks later then try and get in an early application.
LOL- First of all, where does anything say anything about a .03..at the minimum he is raising it .05, and it could even be as high as .1, which you admit is a lot and worth the wait. He said, "above a 3.5", so that could be as high as .1 or even .13....no one said anything about a .03, LOL....
Are you seriously saying that .03 is that much higher? It would be another discussion if we were talking .1 or .2. This is an ABSOLUTELY MINISCULE INCREASE and not at all worth holding your applications up.QuotePlus, apply to the schools first that aren't as hard to get into, wait for the harder ones...Are you just not understanding how rolling admissions works? There are schools (BC, for example) that just will not look at your application until after the New Year. There are other schools, like Georgetown, that begin to admit people in October. However you are distinguishing between schools that "aren't as hard to get into/are harder to get into," it is absolutely irrelevant here, because schools will start reading apps/admitting people whenever the hell they want to, regardless of rank/competitiveness.
More so, schools read applications in the order they go complete. Especially with schools that start this early, like Georgetown, there's no reason to put yourself in the back of that pack when there is no discernible payoff for waiting. Find me a school on LSN that accepts everyone 3.5 and up, and rejects everyone below. There are no strict lines like this.
