So I begin applying in the fall and I really want colleges to see my grades from the upcoming semester because I haven't had awesome grades in the past (Bs from soph year on) but straight As junior year and I'm taking five APs as a senior and want to show colleges that I'm competent as a student and will continue to get good grades through college. I honestly plan on getting straight As. I've learned that grades and school is most important and I will do absolutely whatever it takes to get straight As. Anyway I'm going to apply early and whatnot so will colleges request to see first semester grades or can I choose to send an updated transcript
The places I want to do this for are UNC-CH and Michigan because they are my reaches due to my poor GPA. Everything else is solid on my application. I believe Michigan will alert me of acceptance before first semester is over but in the case I'm deferred, do I do this?
