Well, my son has been deferred to regular admission. :( We got the form letter with a handwritten note on it saying for him to please submit first semester grades from senior year. We knew they wanted to see grades from senior year but we thought quarter grades would be sufficient. However, they want to see the semester grades. The coach was not surprised at all. He said they were always going to need to see his semester grades. They are looking for an upward trend. The good thing is that my son has had his best academic year so far. So it looks like a few more months of uncertainty. :( His semester grades will not be available until the beginning of Feb. My son does not want to play his sport at any other school. He has been contacted by several coaches recently because of his performances at showcases (despite being listed as committed). He has zero interest in playing for those schools (or attending those schools). He has already been accepted to his number 2 school. So I guess we will just wait it out. Hope the time goes by fast because of the holidays.
Question: Since the handwritten note only mentioned the semester grades does it seem like that is the only thing holding him up from being admitted? If they were concerned about something else would they have mentioned it? Gosh all of this is so stressful! My son has been holding up much better. Although,he was absolutely crushed when he received the deferral. However, that seems to have motivated him to work even harder academically. He is very close to having all A's for the next quarter. I would not be surprised if this motivated him to pull those two B+'s up to A's.
