Discus: What Are My Chances?: January 2004 Archive: What should I DO!!! I'm DEAD

I just looked at the Harvard's website regarding transfer admissions. The deadline is FEBUARY 15th, that's ONE MONTH earlier than MIT, Stanford, and virtually all other Ivies.

The thing is, I had an incomplete last semester and another course where the professor made a mistake on my grade. It will all be taken care of but I doubt before FEB 15! I'm dead.

Can I send in all other things first and gave the transcript a little later? I doubt they'll be reading the transfer applications that soon anyway since they mail the decision letter is MAY!

Oh please!

The important thing is to get your application in with a note explaining that your transcript is in progress. Then, get that incomplete done as quickly as possible. Good luck.

"The deadline is FEBUARY 15th, that's ONE MONTH earlier than MIT, Stanford, and virtually all other Ivies. "

NOTE: MIT and Stanford are not Ivy League. They are sometimes referred to as Ivy Plus schools, but they are not officially Ivy.

M6ixty2wo: I'm sure he knows that. He was saying, "MIT, Stanford, and [Yale, Brown, Princeton, Cornell, UPenn, Columbia, Dartmouth]."

M6ixty, good thing you clarified that. That grave misconception would really have aversely affected his admissions process.

Thanks you guys. But you guys misunderstood me.

Voigtrob got me right. Thank You!

By the way, what do you guys think will happen to my case if I write a note to the admission office saying my transcript will be delayed for awhile but sent everything in? Will they just put aside my application and come back to it when my transcript is ready?
