    @enviscimath11 I spoke with all my professors, most just put my current exam grade into the mid-term report. However, for both of my architecture classes, we still haven't done any grading and my professor said he only can write N/A with an good comment

    On your engage portal, does anyone else have the "Waitlist Correspondence" option under Upload materials? I know decisions haven't came out yet, wondering if this might mean anything.

    I have that too and was wondering. I think it has to do with the rolling basis element of the app. As a departement pre screen viable applications it might be quickly deffered to waitlist. So they make that section available prior for everyone.

    Non-traditional student transferring from CC.

    School: Community College of Rhode Island
    Major: Liberal Arts ( Looking to major in Sociology)
    Credits: 62
    College GPA: 3.95/4.0
    SAT: I haven’t taken it.



    College EC’s: Phi Theta Kappa Member, Peer tutor at The Writing Center
    EC’s: Intern at the Institute of Non-violence for Public Policy and Advocacy and TA for citizenship classes for immigrants.

    Recommendations: 9/10

    Three professors. Two hold PhD’s from Brown University (one in English and the latter in Psychology) and one from the University of Chicago (Sociology).

    Essays: 9.5/10.
    I gave insight on my self-inflicted adversities and gave a brief background on the intergenerational cycle within my family in which I am vowing to break. I emphasized on academics and how education is the only plausible way to overcome my adversities. I also mentioned The Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research, which is exclusive to the College of Human Ecology at Cornell University, and its devotion, through its research, to bringing awareness of the implications that emerge from mass incarceration which is representative of Cornell's commitment to challenging societal injustices. I emphasized on the fact that due to my determination as an individual to perpetuate change through means of advocacy and community assistance, I know that Cornell University's record of risk taking and innovative leadership will allow me to assist in the reform of the criminal justice apparatus and the humanization of formerly incarcerated individuals.

    High School Drop-out
    Received GED in 2009 Battery average: 540
    Hooks: First generation college student, father deported for drug trafficking,
    “Unhooks”: convicted felon recently released

    Any input is duly appreciated.

    @wafesgdr12 call! they should’ve sent it in an email a few days after you submitted the application. Unless you’re talking about the application checklist, which I don’t know.

    I applied for the GTO for CALS, but originally wasn't intending on doing so. I easily make the GPA requirement, but because I decided that I would not apply originally, I didn't fulfill all the course requirements. I now am extremely interested in transferring, but would I automatically be disqualified from the GTO?
