    For those of you with the early (rolling) admissions to Pitt....I know a kid interested for next year and an early Oct admit would be a real boost for this kid. if you're willing.....could you

    1) Post GPA and standard test scores (range if you don't want to be exact)

    2) PA resident or out of state?

    3) Did you submit supplements (essay and recs? any others?)

    4) When was application submitted?

    for my D:

    PA resident. Application (for School of Nursing) submitted at the end of July, but HS transcript not sent until the second week of September. D submitted an essay and had one teacher send a recommendation. GPA of 3.9 uw / 4.1 w, 600 CR / 700 M / 640 W, ACT composite = 29.

    We attended one of the open house programs in July, and Pitt waived the application fee since we completed the application while we were there. The app is very easy to complete -- just basic name/address info and lising your senior year courses. It's nice to save the $40.

    DS is 3 for 3 so far and waiting on only 2 more decisions. Today, S got the "Congratulations" from his first choice:

    McCombs School of Business - University of Texas at Austin.

    I believe McComb is ranked #7 by USNWR.

    My son, a 2.9 student, was accepted to college today. They didn't even ask for his test scores. Granted its not his first choice school, but here's the thing - we know he's going to college. I wanted to post this to reassure all of you parents with average (truly average, not CC average) students that there is a school out there for your kid! We have spent the last 3 years agonizing - will he get in, is he good enough, etc. I have to say that CC doesn't help, especially when there are so many incredible students posting their stats and college choices.

    A relief indeed! Now we just wait to hear from the schools he really likes the most...

    That's wonderful! That first acceptance is such a relief, at any GPA.

    I keep reminding my daughter: "B students go to college too. So do some C students. And once they're in the working world, you might be surprised how difficult it is to tell them apart from the A students."

    I remember having a (very well-justified) crying jag when one of my kids was in middle school, thinking he would never be able to graduate from high school. He is attending a great college now and is doing fine. Thank you for this post. Those of you who have "non-CC type" kids: have faith... they tend to find their way. OP: CONGRATULATIONS!

    Thanks everyone for your positive thoughts - he's very relieved and happy and, I have to say, proud of himself - it was really a struggle at times (he has ADHD and was overmedicated for a long time). He was accepted at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff - a beautiful place and a good school. For those of you still waiting - have faith! It will happen!!!!

    It is soooo reassuring when you receive that first acceptance letter.

    BTW...some schools don't ask/wait for test scores, because they accept the test score "stickies' that are placed on high school transcripts. The stickies are score strips that the high school receives after your child takes an SAT or ACT. The school then places the sticky on your transcript. For some colleges, that's good enough for them.
