What to tell son after first rejection?
My son has a 27 composite, writing score of 8, and a 2.6 GPA. He attends a very rigorous all-male parochial school. He has not had any choice regarding courses taken, other than after the two mandatory years of Latin, the next one studied was up to him-he chose French. The Honors Chemistry and Physics were really challenging for him especially. He does have ADD, no excuse, just fact. He has been allowed extended times on certain tests. His ECs are pretty standard, with things like Student Council and service work with our church. His is a very good baseball player. He applied to Ohio Wesleyan (his sister is currently a student there), Univ. of Dayton, and Ohio University. Last week he received a rejection from OU. I spoke with admissions about their appeals process, which relies heavily on 1st semester grades (which may show the same or only a slight improvement). He was so sad after we discussed the rejection. Do you think OWU is still a possibility? He just sent applications to Muskingham and WVU as I think he's just grasping for possibilities right now. Sorry for the long post-any advice? Thank you in advance!
