Applied Economics and Management is akin to a business degree. CAS Economics is an economics degree. I will be applying for Spring 2013 transfer to the School of ILR. Anyone want to start posting stats?

I'm concerned about my GPA and my math SAT score. And I actually have no idea what my HS GPA/Rank was because I never received a final transcript, but it wasn't amazing.
Human Ecology also asks "Please tell us how you approached a challenging circumstance and what resources you employed to deal with that issue." I have a learning disability and lots of life issues, but I don't know that I really want to talk about them. =/

Right now I'm worried about my college official report and letters of recommendation. I asked for them before I left for summer break, and they agreed to write them. But, school doesn't start for us until late September, so I hope they turn them in on time. I'm also worried about turning in my midterm grade report early enough for them to review it. Our first midterms won't be administered until late october/early november.

Reason: added year applying to
I sent all the forms in by mail which they received last Thursday the 27th.
Still on my app status there is an x.
I realize it takes time to process but will they count it even though I won't get a check until after the deadline?
Also I sent my financial aid forms in which arrived Friday but no one was there to sign for it so they left a notice at the door. Will they get it redelivered? And will it count even though it will be collected on/after the deadline?
I have a check beside everything except my final high school transcript and the midterm report. It's been funny though--they said they received the common application more than a week before they received the common application supplement and application fee.
The note says that if you're missing material that they'll send you an e-mail mid-October and give you an opportunity to submit it.
The same thing occurred with my supplement and common application as well. I think it has to do with the way they process your application. I called this week (before they had checked it off), and they said to wait till mid-October to start worrying about missing documents.
Luckily, I just got everything checked off except the midterm report, so I'm pretty happy that I no longer need to worry.
Thefuture101, the application checklist takes an obscenely long time to update. Even with the relatively few number of spring transfers, it still took two weeks to completely fill mine in. To provide some color, I sent all of my material in on 9/14, and my first letter of rec was sent before this date. They just checked off my instructor evaluation box yesterday, completing all my requirements except the midterm report. Long story short, do not stress. If you mailed it in, it is now out of your control. You will do more harm to yourself than good by running yourself through paces about an application. If you sent it before the deadline, then you've done all they ask.
USPS typically attempts to redeliver packages a few times (used to ship things with confirmations when I was an airsoft gun tech), so if they didn't get it this time, chances are good they'll get it tomorrow. Plus, as long as it's postmarked before the deadline, then you have turned it in on time. If I were you, I would make a call to the financial aid office to ask them if they will receive it late.
