    @mrcw42 I think they would be ok with that, if it’s a good rec even if it is from someone old, it’ll be better than an uninvolved rec. I think they just mean current teachers since that is what I have heard when I’ve visited.

    How does disciplinary action affect making IMSA, such as 3 bus write-ups and 1 In School Suspension, but nothing else.
  • mrcw42mrcw42 Registered User Posts: 10 New Member
    @Jolteon101 Don't quote me on this, but I am pretty sure that the only administrative things IMSA sees are your transcripts and teacher reviews, and transcripts don't usually contain anything regarding disciplinary actions. Also, in the case that IMSA does see this, it would probably depend on the severity of the offense.

    I'm just making educated guesses here, so take this with a pinch of salt.

    I have a few questions about life at IMSA:
    1. How much free time do you get?
    2. Do you think a kid with social anxiety can survive there?
    3. What are classes like? I've heard that the teachers there teach differently compared to a normal public high school. How is it different?

    Thank you to anyone who replies! :D
