apply with grades but without ranking?

apply with grades but without ranking?
« on: June 02, 2006, 09:09:02 AM »
I am waiting on 2 of my 4 spring grades, but will likely have them well before our rankings come out.  Do I forward my transcripts when I get my grades, but before rankings come out?

Or should I wait until rankings are released?

Any thoughts?

My school told me that they would forward my transcript and letter of good standing, as well as my fall class rank, because my grades are done but rank won't be ready until late July. 

My GPA stayed the same and it is likely my class rank will as well, except tons of people dropped second semester. 

Better to get your info in soon. Be sure to check deadlines.

I would get the schools your grades ASAP and send your rank when you can.

This at least gives the school a chance to open and organize your file and will cut down on your wait time later.

Also, if you have impressive grades, they may not care too much about the rank. In the same vein, if your GPA is pretty similar to last semesters, they may just figure that it hasn't moved all that much.

I got my information out as early as I could with everything and it ended up helping me a great deal.
