Likely sending in app and transcript tomorrow

I know the priority date is November 1, so I am in a rush to get everything out. Once I receive my SAT scores tomorrow, I will send those to Indiana too. If everything but the SAT scores gets to IU before the priority date, will I be considered as applying before then? Thanks.

Edit, I am retaking the SAT on November 5 and would like the score to be considered instead of the October one. I see in the acceptance thread that decisions are made pretty quickly, would it be smart to wait until after the priority date to apply so I am sure they review the higher SAT scores?

    if you have an 1860 already, you do not need a retake for admission purposes. You can always resend a higher score later for scholarships. 1860 with a 3.6 will get you in. Do you have the new math requirement?

    I'm sorry, what is the new math requirement? Thanks
  • socaldad42socaldad42 Registered User Posts: 849 Member
    you need to take calculus, precalc, or trig. You can read about it on other threads

    Oh, no I haven't and am not taking one of those before college. Does that drastically affect my chances? Looking at the website, I will have 10 credits in Social Sciences, (4 more than they require) would that make up for a math deficiency?

    Just read another thread on it, seems like they will still accept you but you have to complete the course. If I was accepted, I believe I could take it either in the Spring semester, or the Summer.
  • socaldad42socaldad42 Registered User Posts: 849 Member
    I think they will allow you to take it Next semester....

    Okay, thanks a lot for the help and making me aware about the Math requirement. Saved me a potential hassle.

    Submit your IU application online today or as you can and that will probably count for applying by November 1. Then send your other materials as soon as you can.
